Legacy began back in 1923 just after 60,000 Australian soldiers lost their lives in World War 1. Ever since then, Legacy has been supporting families left behind by service personnel who have died in action or have given their health.

The $200,000 gift from Macquarie Mint has come from the sale of two very stylish limited edition silver collections.  The first collection honours the centenary of WW1 whereas the other commemorates WW2. Macquarie Mint, established in 2005, has been selling these exclusive commemorative collections for the last six years. During all that time, a share of every sale has gone to Legacy with the total now exceeding $200,000.

As the generous gift kept growing and growing, the Chairman of Legacy Australia, Rick Cranna, said, "We would like to thank Macquarie Mint for having donated more than $200,000 over the last six years, helping Legacy to care for the families of those who served their country."

Today, Legacy's compassionate service assists more than 65,000 widows and widowers around Australia as well as some 1,800 children and dependants with a disability through innovative and practical programs.

Legacy is committed to protecting the basic needs of individuals and families as well as advocating strongly for their entitlements, rights and benefits. Legacy representatives particularly assist families to cope with bereavement. And their approach includes helping people to thrive despite adversity and loss.

As a community based company, Macquarie Mint prides itself on assisting customers to find the most exclusive, prestigious and historic numismatic collections available. Whether it is precious metals, ancient civilisations, Australian history or international themes, Macquarie Mint has collections that cater for all interests and are affordable for every budget.

Macquarie Mint is proud to have donated in excess of $200,000 to Legacy over the last six years, and the company also gets behind other good causes such as Kidney Health Australia.
