TO HELP commemorate the 100th anniversary of the landing at Gallipoli, coins from 1911-1917 were used at Warwick RSL Memorial Club Anzac Day two-up event.

Event organiser and retired army reservist Michael Litchfield said he had saved the coins to use specifically for the event.

The three coins got a good work-out on Saturday as well, with a record crowd showing up to take part in the traditional betting game.

"Just like all the other Anzac services held on Saturday, the crowd at two-up was much bigger than expected," Mr Litchfield said.

"It was good to see so many people getting into the spirit of the game and the day."

Warwick RSL bar manager Sussan Trim agreed with Mr Litchfield, dubbing the day the club's busiest Anzac Day yet.

Due to renovations to the Kings Theatre, two-up was held in the new function centre.

While this room is much smaller Mrs Trimm said plenty of people still showed up to have a punt at the historic game.

"There was at least 30 to 40 people in there at any given time," she said.

"Everyone had a ball."

This year marked the sixth time Mr Litchfield organised the two-up event.

"I realised no-one had a two-up event and I wanted to get one started," he said.
