The Battle of Long Tan was one of the most savage and decisive engagements in ANZAC history. But the Australian victory was achieved at a cost of 17 Australian and more than 500 Viet Cong lives. In this documentary Red Dune Films honours the heroism of ordinary boys who became extraordinary men amid the mud and shattered trees of a rubber plantation called Long Tan.

NEW Famous Battles In Australian History – Long Tan 2012 1oz Silver Proof Coin

No more than 5,000 of these Australian legal tender coins will be released by The Perth Mint. The coin’s reverse depicts an Australian soldier wearing Vietnam War jungle kit.  The background incorporates a printed historical image of soldiers at Long Tan, and the inscription LONG TAN 1966.

An extremely limited number of Tobruk coins from our Famous Australian Battles series now remain available direct from The Perth Mint.

The 2011 coin coincided with the 70th anniversary of the famous WWII conflict, which commenced in April 1941.

Australian soldiers made up more than half of the Allied presence garrisoned in the crucial Libyan port. When German propagandist Lord Haw Haw derided the tenacious defenders as ‘rats in a trap’, the diggers embraced the name ‘Rats of Tobruk’ as a badge of honour.

A further year down the track, we re-play this Ten News tribute (first shown April 2011) featuring the proud ‘Rats’ who withstood tank attacks, artillery barrages and dive-bombers in defence of Tobruk for eight long months.

Their deeds have become legendary and their nickname part of our language.
