|Title||Collection of British and French coins : Victoria Gully, Gallipoli|
Collection of fourteen coins. Thirteen are British coins from the reigns of Queen Victoria, King Edward VII and King George V. The other is a French ten centime coin from the reign of Napoleon III.
Fourteen coins found in the pocket of a pair of Australian army breeches on the south side of Victoria Gully, near the 1st Brigade Headquarters on 7 February 1919. It was not noted whether the breeches were associated with human remains, or had been left behind by an Australian soldier during the evacuation in December 1915.
