To commemorate the 60th Anniversary of the end of the Second World War, the Royal Australian Mint released the 2005 Six Coin Sets featuring images from the Second World War. The coin set features three evocative designs capturing some of the emotions and spirit of Australia in the 1940s. These designs are representative of: Peace, Remembrance and Coming Home

  • Peace – Captures the joy and spontaneity of one of Australia's most iconic images. The One Dollar coin features the ‘Dancing Man, in Elizabeth Street, Sydney taken on the 15th August 1945 during victory celebrations on VJ Day at end of the Second World War
  • Remembrance – Inspired by images from El Alamein, Egypt in November 1942. The Fifty cent design captures the sombre and reflective mood of remembrance and of the enormous cost of all conflicts
  • Coming Home – Illustrates the powerful image of ‘coming home to family. The Twenty cent design is inspired by an image from the Australian War Memorial (taken on the 29th of July 1945) of an Australian soldier, an ex-prisoner of war returning home and seeing family after many years apart
Outer box may have some light marks or scuffs.
