Niue 2012 Battle for Australia 1942 World War II 4 Coin Silver Color Proof Set. Description : Honoring those who served during the darkest days of World War II. Unlike World War I, the Second World War brought with it the prospect of direct military action against the Australian homeland.With the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, and their campaign of conquest across the Pacific, attacking the Philippines, Malaya, Thailand, and more, that prospect a reality. Japan achieved victory after victory in the early months of the Pacific War.
With the enemy moving ever closer to the Southern Continent, Australians felt a very real fear of invasion throughout 1942 a fear intensified as the Battle of the Coral Sea, the Bombing of Darwin, the midget submarine attacks on Sydney Harbor, and the Kokoda Track Campaign brought the horrors of war to their very doorstep. This set marks the 70th anniversary of the Battle for Australia, offering both dramatic depictions of the desperate fight against the Japanese during World War II as well as tremendous value! Four large, 40 mm silver dollars with dynamic color scenes of the Second World War are encapsulated inside a luxurious, solid wood presentation case.
