Comments

This coloured Aluminium-bronze "Lest We Forget" Commemorative $2 coin was released by the RAM into circulation. Sporting a symbolic red ring the coin marks the Centenary of the Gallipoli Landing in 1915. It was very hard to find in circulation. Some were being sold at vastly inflated prices initially.

The coin was also released in a coincard with a Poppy Counterstamp.


The coin was re-released (with a 2018 Date) in the 30th Anniversary of the Two Dollar Coin (1988-2018) Set:
