These beautiful gold and silver coins commemorate 75 years since the end of World War II (WWII).
Each coin bears internationally recognised motifs of peace, representing poignant tributes to the courage and sacrifice of those who fought in the name of freedom from tyranny.
Struck by The Perth Mint from 99.99% pure gold and 99.99% pure silver, each coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
No more than 250 2oz gold, 1,000 1/4oz gold, 5,000 1oz silver and 1,945 2oz silver coins will be released.
2oz Gold Proof, 1oz Silver Proof & 2oz Silver Antiqued
Each coin’s reverse depicts a representation of two wreaths, a central dove motif against a stylised background and silhouettes of soldiers. The inscription ’75 YEARS END OF WWII’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark also appear in the design.
1/4oz Gold Proof
The reverse of the coin depicts a stylised representation of a silhouetted soldier walking into the sunset and two wreaths encasing a central dove motif. The inscription ’75 YEARS END OF WWII’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark also appear in the design.
The Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination, weight and purity, and the 2020 year-date are shown on each coin’s obverse.
The 2oz silver coin has been individually ‘antiqued’ to give it a unique finish conveying the surface abrasions of an ancient artefact. As a result of this treatment, the appearance of the coin will vary.
The coins are housed in a range of display cases, each within a themed shipper and accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
