Comments

This commemorative $2 coin produced by the RAM is part of the "XXI Commonwealth Games" seven coin set made available for a price of $15 from Woolworths supermarkets from 14/3/2018.
 


It was also available from the RAM and also released into circulation through the tills at Woolworths stores. The set also contains two other coloured $2 coins and four non-circulating $1 coins. The theme for the set of seven coins is the 2018 Commonwealth Games held at the City of Gold Coast.  The three $2 coloured coins are being released into circulation at Woolworths supermarkets over a period of two weeks.

The 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games brings together Australian athletes with representatives from 70 Commonwealth Nations in a spirit of international goodwill and camaraderie.

This $2 coin features the 2018 Games Mascot, Borobi the Koala. The other two $2 coins feature the Australian Team Logo in support of the national team, and the Commonwealth Games logo - all in celebration of the Games. Each are printed with the glowing colours of the sun, ocean, lush greenery and vibrant wildlife - inspired by the dynamic Gold Coast landscape.

The four $1 coins in the 7 coin set feature energetic figures that depict each of the sports and para-sports that will be contested by thousands of athletes from 4-15 April 2018.
