2018 50c Uncirculated Coin

Australian troops fought their most sustained action of the Vietnam War at Fire Support Bases Coral and Balmoral in May and June 1968. Over four weeks, they repelled repeated attacks by troops of the North Vietnamese Army. Amid fierce, close quarters fighting, both bases remained in Australian hands. The Australian units involved were subsequently awarded one of the five battle honours awarded for the Vietnam War.
The Royal Australian Mint proudly commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Battles of Coral and Balmoral with this striking uncirculated 50 cent coin that will appeal to the military historian and coin collector alike.
