 One of the last battles fought before Prime Minister Billy McMahon ordered the gradual withdrawal of Australian troops from Vietnam, the Battle of Long Khanh saw Australian troops attack a heavily fortified communist base camp in mid-1971. 

With Centurion Tanks in support, many VC bunkers were taken but, ultimately, the battle could not be called a decisive victory for the Australians. 3 soldiers were lost, a well as an Iroquois helicopter.

This Royal Australian Mint 50c collector coin commemorates the 50th anniversary of this Vietnam War battle, and features a Centurion Tank design.
