The Dead Man's Penny was slang for a Memorial Plaque issued after WWI and into the 1930s to commemorate people who died as a consequence of war. The round Memorial Plaque (12cm in diameter) was made of bronze and similar in appearance to a penny coin. Over 1,350,000 plaques were issued.

The "dog tag" was originally American slang for an Identification Disc. That slang was never used by Australians until the Vietnam War. The Discs were sometimes referred to as "dead meat tickets" by Aussies.
