A fourth commemorative $2 coin design is official! We alluded this may be the case in our article earlier this month and it has been confirmed by Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasurer Kelly O’Dwyer. 1.5 million of the new red coins are to hit circulation from Monday with the design to be unveiled on Sunday at a special ANZAC march at Malvern Gardens in Melbourne.

The design is to commemorate ANZAC with the centenary just around the corner on April 25th. Although a military theme we won’t see another red poppy, this time red circular stripes will colour the coin. The reverse also depicting 5 crosses and poppy flowers and the words “Lest We Forget”.

The coloured commemorative $2 coins have proved extremely popular with collectors in the last few years. The excitement in the lead up to this release is showing in the chit chat of coin collector circles, we are very keen to see this new coin design.
