The Battle of the Coral Sea was fought during 4–8 May 1942. It was a major naval battle in the Pacific during World War II between the Imperial Japanese Navy and naval and air forces from the United States and Australia.
This first air-sea battle in the Pacific repelled a Japanese invasion force that, if successful, could have isolated Australia from its allies. Instead, Japan was turned back without achieving its objective; this battle served as a major turning point in the Pacific War.
The coin’s reverse features a representation of the Southern Cross and the American flag with a naval ship sailing in the foreground. The design includes the inscription BATTLE OF THE CORAL SEA, WAR IN THE PACIFIC 1941-45, and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.
The coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her 2014 year-date, and the monetary denomination of AUD$0.50
