About the 2014 Australia Gold 1/10 Oz Battle of the Coral Sea Coin

This unique 1/10 oz coin from Australia's Perth Mint commemorates the Battle of the Coral Sea, a critical naval engagement between Allied and Japanese forces in the Pacific Theater of World War II.

Here are some highlights of this coin:

  • Contains 1/10 troy ounce of .9999 fine gold bullion.
  • Design commemorates the Australian and American forces which participated in the Battle of the Coral Sea.
  • Individual fractional gold coins come in original protective plastic capsules.
  • Legal tender face value of $15 AUD (Australian Dollars).
  • Arrives in Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition.

   

Early in World War II, Japanese naval forces were steadily advancing south through Australia's island possesions and towards the country itself. Darwin, a city in northern Australia, was bombed heavily in February, 1942, so the threat to Australia itself was real and imminent. The Battle of the Coral Sea took place from May 4 to 8, 1942. Both sides took heavy damage, but the battle prevented further Japanese advances towards the Australian mainland.

The coin’s obverse bears the likeness of Queen Elizabeth II including the Australian $15 legal tender face value and inscriptions relating to its gold content.

The coin’s reverse side displays a battleship at sail with its guns raised, ready to strike. Behind the battleship are two national symbols: the "southern cross," a constellation of stars representing Australia, which also appears on the Australian flag; and the "stars and stripes," representing the United States. Both countries were the main Allied participants in the Battle of the Coral Sea. Inscriptions on this side read, "BATTLE OF THE CORAL SEA," and "WAR IN THE PACIFIC 1941-1945."

Australia’s Perth Mint was the third and final mint facility opened under the auspices of the British during Australia’s colonial period. Today, the Perth Mint remains the longest-operating mint facility in Australia. It is owned by the state government of Western Australia (not associated with the national Royal Australian Mint). Nonetheless, all of the Perth Mint’s sovereign coins are considered legal tender under Australia’s Currency Act of 1965. Click here to view other available Perth Mint gold products.
