Modern Anzac Day pin designed by Greek Australian

first_imgLocal Greek Melburnian Vicky Kanellopoulos modern ANZAC pin has been included in the official merchandise for the Anzac centenary commemoration.The jeweller wanted to move away from the traditional commemorative pins that are around and decided to include more modern traits which surprised the Australian War Memorial.She chose to use sterling silver because she felt the brooches should be made from “precious materials” which “place value not only on the special occasion but in the material as well”. Retailing at $180, only a few of the brooches have been made, making the purchase very unique.Her vision came from having friends in the armed forces that had recently returned from Afghanistan and her desire to give back to the community.
