Sales History


The Australian Comforts Fund (ACF) commemorative issue honours the service men and women, past and present, who have made history behind and beyond the battlefields. The reverse was designed by Wojciech Pietranik and shows two soldiers with the ACF logo. The legend reads AUSTRALIA REMEMBERS AUSTRALIAN COMFORT FUND. The obverse features an Ian Rank-Broadley portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II, right-facing and crowned. It also contains the legend ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA 2014.

The ACF was founded by Australian women's groups at the beginning of World War I. (Deborah Tout-Smith, 2003) Their goal was to provide Australian Soldiers serving overseas with some small luxuries to supplement their existing rations and more simply provide some comfort and support. These luxuries included food, tobacco, and even socks, which were knitted on mass before being shipped to the trenches. One of their most famous initiatives was the dispatching of Christmas Hampers, often including plum pudding, cake, razor blades, and other goods donated by the public. During World War II the ACF dispatched more than 1.5 million of these Christmas hampers. (Hannah Denadic, 2011)
