Two up gambling game is traditionally played by diggers on Anzac Day. This game is believe to have originated in the mid 1800 in the gold rush days and widely played in the first world war and now it is play  mainly on Anzac Day. This game depicts an early Australian history in pioneers days as well as about the Diggers keeping themselves entertained during the wars.

Two up is a traditional Australian gambling game played mainly by the Australian soldiers (diggers) during world war one and throughout the ages. It was regularly played by the returned soldiers as a part of Anzac Day. Although it was illegal at the time it is now legal to play Two- Up on Anzac Day at the returned servicemen’s league (RSL) clubs and hotels. Anzac stands for Australian and New Zealand Army corps and Anzac Day falls on the 25th of April. It involves flipping two coins (1939 pennies) into the air on a wooden piece of wood called a (kip) within a ring (designated spinner) and a (boxer) person managing the game a (ring keeper) he cares for the coins and the (school) is the group of gamblers. Before it was legal, they had a (cockatoo) nickname for the lookout but that was between 1800-1930s. So, as you can see in the picture the kangaroo (boxer) is collecting the money and the platypus (ring) and (spinner) is flipping the coins. The brown snake is the ring and cockatoo is the (lookout) and all the animals (school) are playing the game. The game is pennies falling with two heads up or both tails down or either head and tail. The 1939 Pennies are the best coin to use because they are the right weight not too heavy and easily seen. The Australian slouch army hat is hanging on the tree as it was popular for the diggers to play this game on Anzac Day.
