2015 PNC - Unlikely Heroes - Animals in War - Murphy the Donkey
2015 PNC - Unlikely Heroes Great and Small - Animals in War - Murphy the Donkey.
This stamp release symbolises the important role that animals played during the war attending to injured soldiers.
This particular stamp features an emotive image displaying the importance of ‘in the field’ medicine. Having only the poppy in colour on the stamp is a simple yet effective token of remembrance.
The coin is part of the Royal Australian Mint’s 2015 $1 Coloured frosted uncirculated six-coin series, Unlikely Heroes.
The reverse of the coin features a modern interpretation of an Australian war hero: Murphy the Donkey, surrounded by an artist’s rendition of the landscape of war in colour print. Each coin is issued as Australian Legal Tender.
Featuring a commemorative 70c Australia Post Stamp and Postmarked the First Day of Issue 27th October 2015 Canberra ACT 2600.
