During the Second World War, the United States and Australia partnered in the Pacific Theater in order to defeat the Axis Powers. You can honor this heroic joint American-Australian effort with the Australia Perth Mint 1/2 oz Silver War in the Pacific coin! Released by the Perth Mint with 1/2 troy ounce of actual silver weight (ASW), each coin is struck from .999 fine silver and is designated with a legal tender face value of 50 Cents.
An effigy of Queen Elizabeth II facing right graces the obverse. Her Majesty's name and the issuing country are inscribed along the rim above the Queen's portrait. The year-date "2013" is placed beneath the portrait. Along the bottom rim, the weight and purity "1/2oz 999 SILVER" can be found to the left of the date, while the denomination "50 CENTS" appears along the rim to the right.
The Australian-American Memorial statue was unveiled in 1954. The portion of the memorial shown on the coin is only the capstone of the structure; the orb and eagle actually sit on an impressive 200-foot column, making the entire statue some 240 feet high.
