June 20th 2018 is the 30th anniversary of the $2 coin. Australia withdrew the $2 banknote and replaced it with a small size 2 dollar coin on this day in 1988, this change and the introduction of the new coin happened exactly 30 years ago today. The standard design of the Australian $2 coin is an Aboriginal portrait with the Southern Cross and a grass tree. In recent years many commemorative $2 coins have been minted most with added colour printing. Details and mintages can be found on our circulation $2 coins page.
