For more than 100 years submarines have been a proud part of the Royal Australian Navy. The first boats, the E Class AE1 and AE2, joined the fleet in 1914 just before the outbreak of the First World War. These were followed by the J and O Class boats.

In the 1960s the Oberon Class diesel-electric submarine continued this pride. From 1967 until 2000, the six Scottish-built Oberon Class boats proved to be extremely capable vessels, renowned for their ability to operate for long periods and remain virtually undetectable. During the Cold War years these boats and crews delivered Australia's strategic policy of forward defence.

The first Australian built submarine, the diesel-electric Collins Class, entered Navy in 1996. The Collins Class, which despite a number of developmental issues, has proved itself one of the world's most effective conventional submarines. The Collins Class is the first Australian submarine to carry female crew. The Class is scheduled to serve until 2025.

Centenary of Australian Submarines 1oz Silver Coin

This beautiful commemorative 2014 Centenary of Australian Submarines coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver and issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965. On 24 May 1914, 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 located 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. No more than 3,000 of these 2014 Centenary of Australian Submarines 1oz silver coin and replica badge sets will be released by The Perth Mint.
