About the pin
The WW100 pin is a metal and enamel ‘brooch clasp’ pin using the centenary programme logo. It represents the official government programme for the New Zealand centenary of the First World War. It has been made available to the public following many requests to the WW100 office for them. The recommended retail price is $5 for New Zealand purchasers.
We encourage authorised resellers of the WW100 pin to donate any profit to a charitable organisation associated with the WW100 programme such as the RSA or Fallen Heroes. The WW100 programme has used any contribution it receives from the sale of the WW100 pins to support the ‘Walking with an Anzac’ school educational resource. You can see some of the great projects by students that have been inspired by the Walking with an Anzac project here: http://walkingwithananzac.tumblr.com/.
