The $2 coin was first introduced on 20 June 1988.
Planning for a $2 coin commenced around the same time as that for the $1 coin. Like the $1 coin, the $2 coin replaced the note of the same denomination.
The designs for the $2 coin were developed from design brief to include a representation of the head and shoulders of a traditional Australian Aboriginal, a representation of the Southern Cross and a representation of Australian flora.
Each Australian circulating coin represents a moment in Australia’s numismatic record, captured in precious metal for future generations to treasure.
The coin is packaged into a navy gift box featuring the Royal Australian Mint crest logo and with accompanying Certificate of Authenticity.
