The Australia Remembers series recognises those who made beyond the battlefields in 2012, it pays tribute to the Australian Merchant Navy who have played an essential role in supporting Australian forces.

Merchant mariners are a country’s lifeline, transporting essential supplies through wartime and peace. During WWII, the Merchant Navy suffered a higher rate of casualties than any of the armed forces. Their courage and commitment has been honoured with memorials and service medals and now with this release by The Royal Australian Mint.

The coin features the 5001 tonne SS River Loddon ‘riding high’ at the end of another successful round trip. This ship was one of 6 River Class Vessels to serve from 1943 to 1947.

This coin is presented in a blister with the now traditional poppy adorned card.

The Merchant Mariners have similar numbers to the Nursing and National Serviceman and are equally passionate about their history. 

Not issued for circulation, the coin is encapsulated on an official presentation card. 

Mintage: 20,000
