Much is made of the successful alliance of European powers against the scourge of Nazism on the continent during World War II. In the Pacific Theater, the aggression and expansionism of Imperial Japan was met by an alliance between the United States of America and Australia. The two nations partnered together on the high seas to push the Imperial Japanese Navy back through the Pacific toward the home islands. Today, have the chance to purchase Australian Victory in the Pacific 1/2 oz Silver Coins online from Provident Metals.
The victory of the Allies over Imperial Japan in the Pacific is marked by summertime celebrations in the United States and Australia. In the United States, the celebration is known as VJ Day for Victory over Japan Day, while Australians celebrate Victory in the Pacific Day. The war ended officially on September 2, 1945, as officials from Japan signed the articles of surrender on board the USS Missouri, an influential US Navy battleship.
On the obverse side of Australian Victory in the Pacific 1/2 oz Silver Coins is a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. The reigning monarch of the United Kingdom and the Queen of Australia, Elizabeth II is featured in right-profile relief in a design created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley for the Royal Mint of England.
The reverse face of these Australian Victory in the Pacific 1/2 oz Silver Coins comes with the image of a bald eagle flying through the foreground clutching the olive branch of peace in its talons.

The Australian-American Alliance proved logistically and strategically successful for both sides. The might of the United States Navy was able to partner with cruiser task forces from the Royal Australian Navy in battle, and use Australian ports and US territories in the region to refit and resupply when needed.
