The Perth Mint is proud to present the latest silver release from The ANZAC Spirit 100th Anniversary Coin Series  commemorating those who lost their lives on the Western Front during the First World War.
 
For the Fallen was written by Laurence Binyon, an English poet and writer, and was first published in 1914 not long after the start of the First World War. The Ode is the name that has been given to the fourth stanza from For  the Fallen and was actually written first. This stanza has become the most recognised of the entire poem,  reprinted by many Australian newspapers during the war. It has since been adopted as part of remembrance  ceremonies both in Australia and around the world.
 
Today The Ode is recited at memorial services commemorating the First World War, such as Anzac Day and Remembrance Day, in honour of all casualties of war regardless of their nationality. It is also recited by men and women of the Australian Defence Force each afternoon at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra, as part of
the Last Post Ceremony.
 
The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver, and is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
 
The Perth Mint will release no more than 7,500 of The ANZAC Spirit 100th Anniversary Coin Series – We Will Remember Them 2018 1oz Silver Proof Coin.
 
DESIGN
The coin’s reverse depicts a soldier in a field of red poppies playing the bugle. In the background are rays of sunlight on which The Ode is written. The design includes the inscription ‘1918 We Will Remember Them’, and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark. The coin's obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty
Queen Elizabeth II, the 2018 year-date and the monetary denomination.
 
Edged lettering features around the coin’s rim with the words,
“PRIDE • RESPECT • GRATITUDE •”.
