Australia has had the same design on the $2 coin since it's first issue in 1988, it's a breath of fresh air to see a different design and a fitting one at that for Remembrance Day 11/11 2012.
In the lead-up to Remembrance Day, it is only fitting that Australia's first $2 commemorative circulating coin features the poppy flower, a symbol synonymous with this important day of reflection.
To further honour the sacrifice of all Australians involved in war and armed conflict, the Royal Australian Mint wanted the first ever $2 commemorative coin to count for something more and has also produced a special colour printed version of the $2 coin with a red poppy to be distributed through the national RSL Red Poppy Appeal.
