2016 20c Coin 'Anzac to Afghanistan' - DARWIN BOMBING

This 20 Cent coin remembers the attack on Darwin on 19th of February 1942 by 242 Japanese bombers, dive bombers and fighter planes. This caused widespread destruction and the deaths of 243 people and wounded more than 300 others.

Many people fearing invasion headed south. Between February and November 1942 Darwin was bombed 64 times. Other towns in Northern Australia including Broome, Wyndham, Port Headland and Townsville were also bombed in this period.
