Comments

This coin was the first Commemorative $2 Coin issued by the Royal Australian Mint. It commemorates Remembrance Day, the 11th of November, where at 11 am a minutes silence is observed to remember all of the fallen soldiers of all of the wars.

The coin shown above is the plain non coloured, version which was released into circulation. It was also issued in an unofficial Coincard in UNC condition, numbers unknown.


A red coloured pad printed version was issued without a mintmark into circulation and was also distributed through RSL clubs in a card/folder. The RAM also issued a a red coloured pad printed NCLT version with a "C" Mintmark.

The RAM then released a 2018 dated version of the non-mintmarked plain Poppy Coin in the 30th Anniversary of the Two Dollar Coin (1988-2018) Set:
