½ oz Australian-American memorial 2013

The Australian-American relationship has been the central issue in Australian foreign policy since the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour in December 1941. War in the Asia-Pacific brought Australia into a crucial and ultimately successful military alliance with its powerful Pacific ally, the United States. The Australia, New Zealand, United States Security Treaty (ANZUS or ANZUS Treaty) is the military alliance which binds Australia and New Zealand and, separately, Australia and the United States to co-operate on defence matters in the Pacific Ocean area, though today the treaty is understood to relate to attacks worldwide. The Australian and United States’ alliance is one which has strengthened over time and is considered very important. This 1/2oz silver bullion coin commemorates this bond and is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965. The coin’s reverse features the eagle which is located on the top of the Australian–American Memorial in Canberra, and commemorates the role of the United States in World War II. It also features elements from both county’s flags and the inscription AUSTRALIAN/AMERICAN MEMORIAL, WAR IN THE PACIFIC 1941-1945.

WHY PERTH MINT COINS ARE MORE POPULAR THAN BARS

While the fabrication cost of bars is generally lower than coins, if portability and international tradability is important to you we suggest you consider bullion coins because:

  1. The wider distribution network of coins means they are more recognised. Alternatively, check with bullion dealers in the country you plan to visit to see if they are familiar with the AGR Matthey and Perth Mint marks.
  2. In some countries bars are taxable whereas legal tender is not. Since Perth Mint coins are legal tender, this can be a significant cost advantage when importing.
  3. When selling, the highly finished surface and milled edge serrations of a coin can make less knowledgeable bullion dealers more comfortable with coins than bars.
  4. The silver Kookaburra silver coin is available in 1 ounce and 10 ounce as well as Kilo coin as is readily excepted all over the world
