This Proof 1 oz. Silver 2014-P $1 Australian Centenary of the Australian Submarines Coin and Badge is the perfect coin for lovers of the sea and those with an appreciation of military history. This set is part of a limited mintage of just 3,000, making this a true find for those who love the designs and what they represent. The coin was struck from .999 fine silver. The set comes in packaging that is Australian military themed along with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
The coin features a colorized reverse design that was created by Wade Robinson. The image captures a partially submerged submarine at sea, going full speed ahead to the holder's right. It includes portions of the boat that are underwater. Above the horizon are the dolphins and crown that are depicted on the badge. Arching over the image in a rim frame is the inscription "CENTENARY OF THE AUSTRALIAN SUBMARINES 1914-2014." The obverse of the coin features Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.
At the center of the badge are dolphins and a crown of the Royal Australian Navy Submarine Service badge. A frame encircles the image and has the inscriptions "SUBMARINE FORCE" and "AUSTRALIA." Under that is a ribbon with the words "SILENT SERVICE."
