In 1916, the Returned and Services League was founded in Australia by returning soldiers from World War I with the aim of continuing to provide the camaraderie, concern, and mateship shown amongst the Australian diggers while they were at war.
Since its foundation, the RSL has grown to 1,200 sub-branches Australia wide with more than 170,000 members, making it the largest ex-service organisation in the country. The Perth Mint, a renowned leader in the manufacture of coins, is honoured to be a part of centenary celebrations for this inspiring Australian organisation.
