2020: $2 - 100 Years of Repatriation - Coloured
Throughout 1919, tens of thousands of soldiers and nurses returned to Austalia from the First world War, many of them with severe psychological and physical wounds. Adjusting to civilian life was often a huge challenge. The newly established federal Repatriation Department provided war pensions, health care, educatin and training, employment, housing, soldier settlement, and commemorations. A centur on, the Department of Veterans' Affairs (as it is now known) still provides vital support and services to nearly 300 000 serving and ex-serving men and women and their families.
This $2 coin features coloured reverse design celebrating a century of repatriation. Presented in DCPL Card.
