Description

This high quality 50mm Die Struck Proof medallion commemorates the service of all who took part in the battles of Coral & Balmoral. The medallion is presented in a leatherette box with a certificate of authenticity.
The Battles of Coral and Balmoral are some of the largest and most sustained battles faced by Australian forces during the Vietnam War. The Fire Support Bases at Coral and Balmoral, stood between North Vietnamese forces and Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) and Bien Hoa.
On 13 May 1968 a regiment of the North Vietnamese Regular Army attacked FSB Coral. The force penetrated defences but determined resistance and courage by Australian and New Zealand forces pushed the North Vietnamese back. Over the coming weeks the base was attacked repeatedly by large enemy forces. On 25 May two enemy battalions attacked FSB Balmoral only to be stopped by Australian Infantry and tanks. The fiercely determined attacks continued until 6 June when the North ceased its actions. Twenty six Australians were lost in the battles. Enemy losses are thought to number more than 300.
Only 1000 Ltd. Ed. medallions will be struck to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Battles of Coral & Balmoral.
