Comments

The $2 coin was introduced into circulation in Australia in 1988 to replace the old familiar green $2 note. In 1999 the Ian Rank-Broadley 4th Portrait of Queen Elizabeth II was introduced on the Obverse of the coin. The Reverse was unchanged from prior years. The images shown above are of a proof coin from a Year 2000 Proof set.

The images below are of a 2001 $2 coin from an Uncirculated Year Set.


This coin was included in the 30th Anniversary of the Two Dollar Coin (1988-2018) Set:
