2017 50c Uncirculated Coin
Costly and unsuccessful, exhausting and deadlocking, the battles in Passchendaele were a trial for many Australian soldiers. As a tribute to their efforts in late 1917, during the Third Battle of Ypres , this coin remembers their initial gains, beset by heavy losses (and more than 38 000 casualties). This fourth release in the Western Front series will be a popular piece for collectors and military enthusiasts.
