Since 1916, it has been dedicated to commemorative activities honouring the courage and sacrifice of the first ANZACs during World War I and all succeeding Defence Force personnel who have served in times of war and other operations.

The 2022 Anzac Day $1 Coin in Card recognizes the 80th anniversary of the Kokoda Trail Campaign of World War II, a series of fierce engagements fought between Japanese and Allied forces in the then Australian territory of Papua.
