The Australian Army Special Air Service Company was expanded and renamed the Special Air Service Regiment on the 4th of September 1964.

The reverse features a stylised representation of the winged dagger and ‘WHO DARES WINS’ S.A.S. badge to centre, surrounded by a band featuring the dates of the anniversary 1964-2014 as well as the wording ‘Special Air Service Regiment 50th Anniversary’. This coin is housed in a plastic cover on a card showing the Ian Coate painting ‘Moment of Contact’ to one side and details of the Wanderer’s Ball to reverse. This coin was given to the ball attendees and is a lovely keepsake for the anniversary.
