CoinTwenty Cents 2011 War Historians (NCLT)

The Australian 20 cent coin was first introduced with decimalisation on 14 February 1966 when it replaced the pre-decimal Australian florin, to which it is equal in size and mass. The original reverse design by Stuart Devlin has not been changed since its introduction.

The denomination is occasionally used by both the Royal Australian Mint and the Perth Mint to issue collector coins, which are legal tender in Australia - such as this one.

This third military commemorative 20 cents coin in the Australia Remembers series (after the Australian Service Nurses 20 cents in 2009 and the Lost Soldiers of Fromelles 20 cents in 2010) recognises those who made history beyond the battlefields. Australian war correspondents that have shaped our perception of conflicts since the Boer War - like C.E.W. Bean, chronicler of Gallipoli and founder of the Australian War Memorial, and Damien Parer, whose memorable images from the Kokoda track preceded his death in the line of duty - exemplify an honourable occupation distinguished by bravery and integrity.

The coin was issued in a presentation card (issue price A$6.95). No coins of this type were issued into circulation.

In tiny letters below the head, the artist's initials IRB (for Ian Rank-Broadley).

Around the effigy is the monarch's legend and the date: ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA 2011.
