In 1915 New Zealand’s role in the First World War reached a new level. In near-impossible conditions, the New Zealand Expeditionary Force took part in the Gallipoli campaign alongside our Australian neighbours. The Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) was formed and the spirit of Anzac lives on today.

Centenary of the Gallipoli Landing – 2015 Four Silver Proof Coin Set

On the centenary of the First World War battles at Gallipoli, four of the countries touched by the campaign have contributed stunning silver proof coins to this unique set. Featuring coins from New Zealand Post, Royal Australian Mint, Royal Mint and Turkish State Mint, this set honours the memory of those whose lives were lost at Gallipoli.
