Designed by renowned artist Dave Burke, the coin design features a New Zealand soldier and an Australian soldier brought together by the hardships of Gallipoli. The soldiers stand back to back with their heads bowed in respect and remembrance. Incorporated in the background of the design are mangopare patterns (hammerhead shark), patterns traditionally associated with warriors and symbolising strength, determination and an unwillingness to back down. The silver ferns represent New Zealand’s national identity and appear on the war graves of fallen New Zealand soldiers around the world
