CoinSilver Half Ounce 2017 Victory in the Pacific

The Australian half ounce silver piece (abbreviated as 1/2 oz and designated with Ag for "silver") is a bullion and commemorative coin format. Uniquely, in Australia there are two mints authorised to strike legal tender: the Royal Australian Mint (which also makes the country's circulating coinage) and the Perth Mint which only makes collector and bullion coins, as well as other bullion products.

Both mints endeavour to create coins with attractive designs, and to introduce new designs and themes often, in order to raise the numismatic value of the coins over the value of previous metal used.

This coin is part of a series commemorating the Australian participation in World War II - the War in the Pacific, as the Pacific Ocean theatre of this war is called. This design marks the end of the conflict - Victory in the Pacific, also known as VJ Day (the day of victory over Japan).
