The national postal service providers of Australia and New Zealand have come together in conjunction with The Perth Mint to honour troops from both nations who fought at Gallipoli.

The 2015 ANZAC Silver Coin & Stamp Set is a stunning collectable comprising an Australian 70c stamp, a New Zealand $2.00 stamp, and special commemorative stamp-shaped legal tender coins featuring superb complementary designs.

ANZACStampShapedAUCoinANZACStampShapedNZCoinSet on background imagery of Anzac Cove, they share the word ANZAC and silhouetted figures of two soldiers at a memorial service – an Australian bugler wearing a slouch hat, and a New Zealand catafalque sentry in a ‘lemon squeezer’ hat.

Imbued with hues that represent Australia’s sunburnt earth and blue skies, the design of the Australian issues include golden wattle, the national floral emblem. The New Zealand issues feature an emblematic silver fern and are infused with the lush greens and blues of New Zealand’s fertile landscape.

Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1/2oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality. Issued as legal tender of Australia and New Zealand respectively, they feature a remarkable rim in the shape of stamp perforations.

Extremely limited mintage

An extremely rare joint-issue by the two ANZAC nations, just 2,500 of these sets will be released. Housed in a clear latex display case which comes in a shipper featuring key design motifs, each set is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

  1. My name is Simon Peter Bedard.My thoughts on The Perth Mint is that,it is tied for greatest mint with Royal Canadian Mint .These ANZAC stamps are part of their historic coins and stamps.I’m a Canadian and I really like Perth Mint quality, not to mention really amazed.Perth Mint has great coloured,bright,and historic coins and stamps. I really like looking at new Perth Mints’items. It’s too bad I live in Canada or I probably would get more coins.
