2014 Remembrance Day PNC – Commemorating a Century of Australian Defence Service

This 2014 Postal Numismatic Cover (PNC) honours the significant contributions of Australia's defence forces throughout the past century. The cover features a coloured aluminium-bronze two-dollar coin with a design symbolising peace and hope for the future, along with a 70c Australian Defence Force commemorative postage stamp.

Key Points:

  • Historical Significance: The PNC marks a century of Australian military service, from the establishment of the Australian Army and Commonwealth Naval Force shortly after Federation, to the formation of the Australian Imperial Force (AIF) in 1914, and the modern Australian Defence Force (ADF) comprising the Royal Australian Navy, Royal Australian Air Force, and Australian Army.
  • Limited Edition: Only 14,500 of the 1.85 million mintage of this special coin were allocated for these PNCs, making them a sought-after collectable.
  • Design: The coloured $2 coin features a dove carrying an olive branch, a symbol of peace, surrounded by concentric green stripes and rays of sunlight inspired by the original Rising Sun badge of the Australian Commonwealth Military Forces. The stamp highlights the different branches of the Australian Defence Force.
  • Remembrance Day: This PNC serves as a poignant reminder of the sacrifices made by Australian service members in conflicts throughout history, while also celebrating the hope for peace and a brighter future.

Additional Notes:

  • The coin is presented in an illustrated envelope with the first day of issue postmark.
  • This PNC is an excellent addition to any collection focusing on military history, Australian coinage, or thematic collections related to remembrance, peace, and commemoration.

It remains in excellent condition.
