2018 Coloured $2 Coin Lest We Forget Eternal Flame


Lest We Forget Eternal Flame Coloured $2 Coin (image courtesy ramint.gov.au)

As ANZAC Day approaches we’ll soon see a new coloured 2 dollar coin in our change depicting the eternal flame surrounded by a pool of reflection. This orange yellow flame centre is surrounded by blue tones of water. The legends read “LEST WE FORGET ETERNAL FLAME TWO DOLLAR”.

The design is inspired by the Eternal Flame memorial at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra. There, a perpetual flame burns as a symbol of eternal life and remembrance of those who gave their life in war. It sits in the Pool of Reflection in the commemorative courtyard.


The Royal Australian Mint has released these coins into circulation, issued them in rolls and struck a C mintmarked coin available in a collector card.
