Comments

The inaugural Paralympic Games took place in Rome in 1960. Since then these Games have been held in each host city following the Olympic Games.

Australians have participated in every Paralympics to date and have achieved a top five finish on the medal tally at every Games since 1996.

This commemorative piece is the first $2 coin to feature multiple colours representative of the Australian Paralympic Committee logo, incorporated into the design, capturing a moment in a wheelchair race at its dynamic best. This design embodies the spirit of the Australian Paralympic Committee’s ‘Believe’ campaign, conveying the self-belief and strength needed to become an elite athlete. Official 2016 Australian Paralympic Team Partner Woolworths, will release this coloured coin commemorating the Games and the coin is also available in a card.
