    Default Australian 60th Anniversary WW2 Medallion

    These medallions were issued in 2005 to surviving WW2 veterans. My grandfather gave me his when he got it as he didnt want it, he also received his WW2 medals in 2005....60 years after everyone else. Ironically my other grandfather also didnt get his medals until the 1990's I must come from a "not in a hurry" family

    Since receiving my grandfathers medallion I have picked up a few on ebay. It wasnt that along ago you could pick them up for $20, now they seem to be around $40.

    Now they seem to be back closer to $20. I gotta stop buying them Knowing my luck they will end up being worth bugger all.
    I did read that the government initially expected to give out about 300,000 of them. I suppose thats realistic considering nearly 1,000,000 Australians served in WW2.

    I have about 10 of them I think.

    I dont plan on selling any of mine. If you periodically check ebay, you should come across one (just had a look and none at the moment , there is usually at least one)
