2015 50c Uncirculated Coin Australia at War - Crete

The popular Australia at War series continues with this uncirculated coin, paying tribute to the Australian Second World War soldiers who persisted against insurmountable odds at Crete. This coin will be cherished by military historians, coin collectors and those whose families have served in conflict. During the Second World War in 1941, as Australian and Allied troops began withdrawing from Greece, many were relocated to the island of Crete to sustain the Royal Navy’s garrison. While German forces were initially engaged in other battles, they sought to capture the island’s three main airfields, launching an assault on Crete on 20 May.
