Commemorative coins of Australia

Coins of the Australian dollar are circulated with different designs depicting various anniversaries or significant Australian events, these differing coin designs being labelled Australian commemorative coins. Typically, only the 20c, 50c and $1 coins have been minted in commemoration, however in 2012 a commemorative $2 coin was minted for Remembrance Day and in 2016 a 25c gold coin was minted for Anzac Day.

2 dollar coin

Australia's first commemorative $2 coin was released in 2012 to commemorate Australia's involvement in wars.

Circulation releases

The 2012 commemorative $2 coin was minted to acknowledge Remembrance Day. It features a poppy in the centre on a background of microtext, reading: "remembrance day" and "lest we forget".[1] There are also poppies on either side of the main design. The obverse features the third effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley, and "Australia 2012". A coloured version of the coin is also to be circulated, (with a mintage of around 500,000), as Australia's first coloured circulating coin. As Canada also has coloured circulating coins, Australia is now the second country to do so.[2]
