Story

35th anniversary

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.

2023 heralds 35 years since the introduction of Australia’s two dollar coin in 1988. This uncirculated collection celebrates our nation’s numismatic history.

Commemorative designs

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 production of the Remembrance Day poppy coin.
