2020 End of the Second World War 75th Anniversary set of 3 silver proof coins

This set of three 2020 silver proof coins commemorates the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War, with a special coin each from the Royal Australian Mint, The Royal Mint and New Zealand Post. This set, consisting of an Australian $5 coin, a NZ $1 coin and a UK £5 coin, reflects the hope for peace and the sorrow of loss shared by the Allied nations of Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.

Highlights

  • Commemorates the 75th anniversary of the end of WWII
  • Three silver proof coins from the Allied nations Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom
  • Low worldwide mintage of 1,000 sets
  • Only 200 sets available in New Zealand.

The New Zealand coin is a 1oz version of the WWII 75 Years 2oz silver proof coin, featuring a remembrance wreath comprised of New Zealand native plants harakeke (flax) flowers and ponga (fern) koru and fronds. Among its many uses, harakeke is prized as a durable weaving material, and here symbolises the strength and unity of New Zealand communities as they endured six years of disruption, rationing and anxiety. Koru, the coiled, unfurled fronds of New Zealand ferns, represent hope and new beginnings brought by the end of this terrible war.
