TWO-UP is an Anzac Day tradition.

The game, which involves pitching two coins up in the air and betting on how they will land, was played extensively by Australian soldiers during World War I.

And even though the game was outlawed through large parts of the country (with Perth’s old Burswood Casino an exception), Anzac Day – April 25 – sees an amnesty declared in most parts.
