2023-C Vietnam War $2 Graded MS67

2023 End of Australia's involvement in the Vietnam War 50th Anniversary 'C' Colour-Printed ($2) Two Dollar Uncirculated Australian Decimal Coin.

The Vietnam War was Australia’s longest of the twentieth century.

Over a decade the commitment grew from a military training team to a battalion and then a task force. Each of the Army, Navy and Air Force were involved. The Army playing the biggest role, basing its operations largely in South Vietnam’s Phuoc Tuy Province.

Some 60,000 Australians served in Vietnam, 521 lost their lives and many more were wounded before the last Australian troops came home in December 1973. 

Australia’s first troops arrived in South Vietnam in 1962. For the next decade, Australian soldiers, sailors and airmen served in a war against North Vietnamese-backed communist guerrillas and the North Vietnamese Army. Most fought in Phuoc Tuy province, site of the Australian Task Force and Logistics bases and scene of many encounters with enemy forces, from larger battles like Long Tan, Coral/Balmoral, Baria, Binh Ba and Nui Le, to patrol scale actions and smaller skirmishes.

The United States and her allies withdrew from Vietnam in 1973.

South Vietnam surrendered to the North in 1975.

Australia completed its withdrawal in 1973, two years before North Vietnam’s victory in April 1975.

Limited mintage of 80,000

Coin’s obverse features the effigy Queen Elizabeth II Memorial Obverse designed by Jody Clark
