2023 $2 35th Anniversary of the Two Dollar Coin Fourteen Coin Collection
2023 heralds 35 years since the introduction of Australia’s two dollar coin in 1988. To mark the occasion, the Royal Australian Mint has produced this stunning fourteen-coin collection featuring a selection of commemorative designs that have appeared on the reverse of Australia’s circulating two dollar coins. This uncirculated collection celebrates our nation’s numismatic history.
The two dollar coin was first introduced into general circulation in 1988, Australia’s Bicentenary year. Replacing the two dollar note due to its short circulatory lifespan, the size and format of the two dollar coin was determined after considering the needs of the visually impaired community, security requirements, and a desire to avoid shaped coins, amongst many other considerations.
Since its introduction, the designs that have appeared on Australia’s circulating two dollar coins have honoured many historical and culturally important Australian stories. The first of many commemorative circulating two dollar designs was released in 2012 with the striking Remembrance Day poppy coin.
Reverse features 14 coins with select commemorative coloured and uncoloured designs that have appeared on the reverse of Australia’s circulating two-dollar coins over time.
The coin’s obverse features the memorial effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II designed by Jody Clark as well as the 2023 year-date.
Fourteen coin collection presented in a beautiful collection folder and presentation sleeve.
