Throughout the ensuing four years of warfare, the United States and its vital Allies in the region, most notably Australia, fought tooth and nail with the Japanese Imperial Navy to wrest control of countless island chains back from the clutches of Japan. In what became known as an island-hopping campaign, the Americans and Australians would engage in some of the war's bloodiest battles for the freedom of the region. On the reverse face of these 1/10 oz Australian Gold War in the Pacific coins you'll find the image of the perched eagle in the center of the design, serving as a barrier between the Australian flag on the left and the Stars and Stripes of the United States on the right.
An exact depiction of the eagle stands today at a memorial in the center of Canberra, Australia's federal capital. The obverse face of the coin has the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II designed in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley. This face includes engravings of Her Majesty's name, the nation of issue, year of issue, and the coin's weight, purity, metal content, and face value. The Perth Mint is Australia's oldest operating facility, having opened in 1898 as the third and final of the Royal Mint facilities in Australia.
Today it operates independently of the federal government's Royal Australian Mint, and is owned by the state of Western Australia.
