Quick Overview

2011 coin celebrates Australian War Correspondents

Details

The Australia Remembers series recognises those who made history beyond the battlefields. In 2011 it celebrates Australian war correspondents that have shaped our perception of conflicts since the Boer War. 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 20 cent coin is presented on a card in a similar format to the Australian Service Nurses and the Lost Soldiers of Fromelles coins with a brief history
