After nearly six long years of brutal warfare that stretched around the entire globe, the final guns of World War II fell silent in the Pacific Ocean as a delegation of Japanese officials surrendered to the United States of America and its Allies aboard the powerful USS Missouri battleship. Right now, you can buy Australian Victory in the Pacific 1/4 oz Gold Coins online at Provident Metals.
With your purchase of the Australian Victory in the Pacific 1/4 oz Gold coin comes a coin with a protective plastic flip. The Perth Mint issued these beautiful specimens starting in 2013 to celebrate the successful alliance of the United States and Australia in the Pacific Theater of World War II. Each one of the gold coins is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
On the obverse face of the Australian Victory in the Pacific 1/4 oz Gold Coin is a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is shown here in right-profile relief in the popular Ian Rank-Broadley design created in 1998. This effigy of the Queen wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara featured on the obverse of Australian coins from 1999 to 2017, with the adoption of a new effigy beginning in 2018.
The reverse side of the Australian Victory in the Pacific 1/4 oz Gold Coin showcases the glory of the hard-won peace in World War II. An eagle flies into view in the center of the design with an olive branch between its talons. On the left side of the design, the Stars and Stripes of the United States of America. On the right side, the Southern Cross flag of the Commonwealth of Australia. Inscriptions include Victory in the Pacific along the top rocker and 1945 along the bottom.
The United States of America was the only nation in World War II to actively fight a two-front war and emerge victorious. The United States was not only heavily engaged in ground and aerial combat in Europe, but also ground, naval, and aerial combat in the Pacific Theater as it engaged in an island-hopping campaign to take back islands from Imperial Japan and push it back towards the home islands. The Commonwealth of Australia was an invaluable partner in this effort and the two nations celebrated the victory with a remembrance day known as Victory over Japan Day (VJ Day) in the United States and Victory in the Pacific Day (VP Day) in Australia.
