The Darkest Hour Dollar 2017.

1 troy oz Silver Proof.

Limited Edition Number 0319

  • Minted from 0.999 silver
  • Limited worldwide mintage of 2,500, minted by the Royal Australian mint.
  • Coin comes in a pressed metal tin, made to resemble those gifted to soldiers in World War I by HRH Princess Mary at Christmas

The coin depicts the darkest day in New Zealand's First World War campaign. The New Zealand Division suffered nearly 850 fatal casualties in a few hours on 12 October 1917, when it took part in a botched attack on strong German defences at Passchendaele in Belgium. This was the greatest loss of life in a single event in New Zealand's post 1840 history. The bodies of most of the men killed that day were never recovered.
