Comments

This commemorative $2 coin produced by the RAM is part of the "Mr Squiggle" seven coin set made available for a price of $15 from Woolworths supermarkets from 13/2/2019. It is also available from the RAM and also released into circulation through the tills at Woolworths stores.

The set also contains three other circulating $2 coins and two non-circulating $1 coins and a special non-circulating commemorative 1 cent coin. The theme for the set of seven coins is based on the classic Australian children's Television series "Mr Squiggle". The 1 cent coin and two $1 coins are only available in the seven coin set.


The four $2 coins are being released into circulation at Woolworths supermarkets over a period of four weeks.

The Mr Squiggle Television series is celebrating its 60th Anniversary in 2019.
This particular $2 coin depicts one of Mr Squiggle's friends  "Gus" the Snail.
