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.
To represent New Zealand’s national colours, the mangopare is coloured white on the coin, with the background coloured black. Around below the souldiers' feet, the dates 1915 - 2015.
Around above in the outer ring, · THE SPIRIT OF ANZAC · WE WILL REMEMBER THEM ·; around below, the value and denomination 50 CENTS.
