I am aware that the Royal Mint issue commemorative coins for anniversaries and such other events; I believe one was issued for the Anniversery of The R.A.F..
 
Perhaps a case could could be made for the striking and issue of a coin for the 100th Anniversary of the landings.

Hi Mal

I think that is a great idea - is this something that should be raised at the AGM on Wednesday?

Regards

Unfortunately I will be unable to attend by I will throw it up the line to Andy Crooks and John Crowe and see what they think.
 
Thanks for the response Barry.

Great idea but may need to put a bit of pressure on them to do this, as for some reason Gallipoli is never talked about.

On the suggestion of Andy I have e.mailed the Association Chairman and made the initial suggestion.

Hi all,
 
For those interested the Western Australia mint regularly issues commemorative coins for Gallipoli. No doubt a very special issue will be made for 2015. The one for 2011 had only 5000 issued at $107au and has been sold out so when you know they are being issued get in quick! I would think as they have done in the past for any big event they will have three or four tiers of coins ranging from the $20 to the $2-4000 to cater for all types of collectors. (subscribing to their newsletter is the way to go). I would also expect that the various education departments within Australia will also issue medallions to the school children. 
 
Below is the URL that accesses the page concerning the coins.

I have only recently found out that the Royal Mint struck a special FIVE POUND coin commemorating the Gallipoli landings in 2015.

It was one of a set of six World War 1 FIVE POUND coins. The set cost £465-00 , but that web page has been taken down now.
