New Zealand 50 cents 2015 - The Spirit of Anzac

New circulating commemorative:

'The Spirit of Anzac'

For many years, New Zealanders and Australians have paid their respects to the brave soldiers who lost their lives fighting for Country, King and Empire on 25 April 1915. Anzac Day 2015 marks 100 years since this tragic event and we remember our Anzacs through this special Anzac commemorative circulating coin.

The Anzac coin design features a New Zealand and Australian soldier standing back to back with their heads bowed in remembrance. The mangopare (hammerhead shark) pattern symbolises strength and determination, and the silver fern reflects New Zealand's national identity.
