The Perth Mint and Australia Post have introduced the 2012 ANZAC Day Stamp and Coin Cover, which salutes the nurses who have served and continue to serve in the Australian Defence Force.
An uncirculated aluminum bronze $1 coin features nurses from both World Wars and a patient receiving care. A bugler appears in silhouette with inscriptions “Lest We Forget” and the date of AZNAC Day “April 25”. The reverse design is created by Wade Robinson. The obverse carries the Ian Rank Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II with the “2012” date and legal tender face value of “1 Dollar”.
The commemorative coin displayed through a circular window of an illustrated envelope. Affixed to the envelope is an official Australia Post stamp, postmarked on the first day of issue with Australia Post’s Seal of Authenticity and official number.
