2013-P Australia Gold War in the Pacific - Australian American Memorial - (1/10 oz) $15 - BU

The War in the Pacific was a series of coins issued by the Perth Mint to commemorate the Australia and United States partnership during World War II. During the War, Australian and American forces came together to defeat the widespread threat of the Japanese Imperial Navy and Army. Throughout much of the 1930s, the Japanese had expanded out from their home islands in a war that went largely unnoticed, or at least drew no reaction from most world powers.

Once the Japanese attacked the American Naval Fleet at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, a sleeping giant was awakened. The United States Navy, Marine Corps, and Army began a long-term island-hopping campaign that swept across the Pacific Ocean toward the home islands of Japan. Lasting from 1941 until August 1945, the Americans combined with the Australians lead the Pacific Ocean region to freedom and safety, pushing the Japanese back and securing victory for the Allies.

Coin Design
The reverse design is modeled after the Australian-American Eagle Memorial in Canberra, Australia. This memorial sits 250 feet tall and features an eagle perched atop an orb to celebrate the bravery of the Australian and American soldiers who fought the Pacific chapter of World War II. Inscriptions include AUSTRALIAN/AMERICAN MEMORIAL and WAR IN THE PACIFIC 1941-45. The Perth Mint's mint mark, "P", is to one side of the design. The obverse design has Ian Rank-Broadley's effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and inscriptions that include the face value of the coin, the date, 1/10 OZ 9999 GOLD, ELIZABETH II and AUSTRALIA.
