Australian army chaplains are remembered on a new 20-cent coin issued on Anzac Day, April 25.
Chaplains led a veterans’ march in recognition of a century of ministry and pastoral support for the troops.
The new coin is part of the Australia Remembers series from the Royal Australian Mint.
The coin series pays tribute to past and present Australians who played important roles during times of war, conflict and peace operations.
“As we reflect on and commemorate the enormous sacrifice made by defense personnel on the frontline of battle this Anzac day, it is equally important to remember the service of all Australian military personnel,” said Bernie Ripoll, member of Parliament and Parliamentary secretary to the Treasurer.
