For Australians, Gallipoli is synonymous with the First World War.
28,150 Australians died or were wounded during the campaign; the country's single greatest loss of the Great War.
In memory of this, the Royal Australian Mint and Australia Post are offering UK collectors the exclusive opportunity to own an Australian tribute to the Gallipoli Landings - 100 years on.
Carefully encapsulated within the limited edition First Day Coin Cover, the Gallipoli Centenary Silver Proof Coin features the Lone Pine and headstones of many whose lives were lost.
The five Australian Stamps are presented within an official Miniature Sheet and tell the story of the Campaign through original photographs from 1915, including; The Landing, LCPL Albert Jacks VC, Lone Pine, Field Medicine and The Evacuation. The stamps have been officially postmarked with the all-important first day of issue date - 14th April 2015.
Just 250 Silver proof coins and stamps have been reserved for inclusion in this Silver Coin Cover, issued exclusively for UK collectors. This tiny amount makes this cover highly collectable - and a sell-out seems likely.
