Australian 2005 Proof Six Coin Year Set : Peace, Coming Home, Remembrance : 60th Anniversary of the end of the Second World War

Almost a million Australians, both men and women, served in the Second World War. Over 30,000 were taken prisoner and 39,000 gave their lives. In 1945 the announcement of the end of the Second World War evoked a range of emotions and images that continue to touch us today.

To commemorate the 60th anniversary of the end of the Second World War the Royal Australian Mint proudly released a unique collection of coins entitled Peace, Coming Home and Remembrance.

Peace – this $1 coin captures the joy and spontaneity of one of Australia’s most iconic images taken during victory celebrations at end of the Second World War.

Coming Home – the design on this 20 cent coin is inspired by an image* from the Australian War Memorial of an Australian soldier, an ex-prisoner of war returning home and seeing family after many years apart.

Remembrance – struck on a 50 cent coin this design captures the sombre and reflective mood of remembrance and the enormous cost of all conflicts.

The designs of the 20 cent, 50 cent and $1 coins have been included in the 2005 Year Sets. The sets are a continuing reminder of this important time in Australian history and will remain a treasured part of any collection for years to come.

The proof version is of course struck to the Mint’s exacting proof standards and is housed in a striking wallet-style holder.

*A heart-warming touch to the design on the 20 cent piece is the young Australian girl in the photograph that inspired the design, has been discovered, 60 years later. Jacqui Dowling was just a young girl when her father returned from the war and in a very touching moment a photographer captured this family’s intimate reunion. It was during our collaborative research with the Australian War Memorial that this photograph emerged and became the inspiration for one of our coins.
