2023 $1 Centenary of Legacy Uncirculated Coin in Card – AlBr
Legacy is an iconic Australian charity dedicated to supporting families of veterans’ who have given their life or health in operational service. Legacy supports the partners and children of veterans through assistance aimed at protecting individuals and families’ basic needs; advocating for their entitlements, rights and benefits; assisting families through bereavement; and helping people thrive despite grief, hardship and loss.
For 100 years, Legacy has been standing proudly as the only veteran service organisation in Australia dedicated solely to the care and support of our veterans’ families. Over 40 Legacy Clubs across Australia and one Club in London work to ensure families receive the support they deserve.
Legacy grew out of the ashes of World War One. In the trenches of the Western Front during World War I, a soldier said to his dying mate “I’ll look after the missus and kids”. This became known as The Promise – and it is still kept today.
Legacy has transformed the lives of hundreds of thousands of families over the last 100 years, providing caring and compassionate support for the families of veterans, all done through the dedication and passion of Legacy volunteers – known as Legatees.
Struck by Royal Australian Mint, the coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965 and has a mintage of 30,000.
The reverse features the Legacy torch logo with open hands symbolising the compassionate support and care provided by Legacy to families of veterans’ over the past 100 years.
The obverse features Jody Clark’s memorial effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizbeth II as well as the 2023 year-date.
Each coin is presented in a Legacy themed presentation card.
