The Fine Silver Proof Year Set for 2005 includes all of our well-known and well-loved standard coins with three unique designs on the $1, 50 cent and 20 cent coins to serve as a reminder of this important time in Australian history.

Representing peace, coming home and remembrance the images on these coins were designed in consultation with the Australian War Memorial using photographs from their collection

The one dollar coin entitled 'Peace' captures the joy and spontaneity of one of Australia's most iconic images, the 'dancing man' taken during victory celebrations at the end of the Second World War.

The fifty cent coin design 'Remembrance' captures the sombre and reflective mood of remembrance and the enormous cost of all conflicts.

The twenty cent coin, 'Coming Home' was inspired by an 1945 photograph of an Australian soldier, an ex-prisoner of war, returning home and seeing family after many years apart.

The 2005 Fine Silver Proof Year Set bears all the hallmarks of the Royal Australian Mint's renowned commitment to quality, from the immaculately crafted silver proof coins to the exquisite wooden presentation case crafted from rich Jarrah timber.

Each set is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity to add further to the beauty and prestige of this limited coin set.

Beautifully crafted in pure silver and with a limited mintage of only 6,500 sets, demand will be high among those who wish to own a reminder of this important time in Australian history.
