In an age in which camera technology was in its infancy, these extraordinary paintings provide insight into one of the largest wars the world has experienced. These artworks serve as a visual history, giving viewers the ability to understand the events of the Great War. From Robert Camm’s painting portraying Aussie troops preparing for war to paintings by official war artists, this collection creates a personal representation of the war. These images explore a visual and sensory dimension often absent in written histories or other forms of reportage. Through brush strokes, these artists tell stories of bravery, sacrifice and often compassion in the face of adversity. Enhanced with an exclusive enamel technique and finished in 24-carat gold, the nine genuine King George V Australian pennies are united within an attractive black presentation case. Complete with an informative 12-page booklet featuring the artwork found on each penny, the collection is a strictly limited edition, with just 5,000 sets issued worldwide.
