The Silent Service
OnMay 24 1914 (just before the outbreak of World War I), the Royal Australian Navy took delivery of its first submarines in Sydney, the two British-built E-class vessels HMAS AE1 and HMAS AE2, as part of a substantial upgrade of Australia’s fledgling naval fleet. Today, the Royal Australian Navy Submarine Service consists of six Collins-class submarines based at the Royal Australian Navy Submarine Force Element Group Headquarters in Rockingham, Western Australia. Over the past few decades Australian submarines have conducted extensive surveillance operations in South East Asia, including collecting vital intelligence during the Cold War.

The coin features a full colorscene of a submarine cruising through the ocean. The sub's bow wave breaks through two concentric circular rope bordersderived from the Royal Australian Navy Submarine Service ship’s badge. The dolphins and crown that feature in the Royal Australian Navy Submarine Service ship’s badge is also incorporated into the design, with the inscription CENTENARY OF AUSTRALIAN SUBMARINES 1914-2014. The Perth Mint's "P" mint mark is judiciously located near the sub's conning tower or "sail".

This unique coin also features edge-lettering with the inscribed words SILENT SERVICE appearing three times around the edge of the coin. An enamel badge replicating the official Royal Australian Navy Submarine Service badge features the dolphin and crown emblem and incorporates the inscription SUBMARINE FORCE AUSTRALIA SILENT SERVICE. Both vibrant color enamel as well as 24-karat gold plating are used to highlight this badge.
