Royal Australian Mint Armistice Remembrance Day Red Poppy Coloured $2 UNC coin 2018



This poignant two-dollar coin serves as a heartfelt tribute to the 100th anniversary of the Armistice, marking the end of World War I. The coin's vibrant design prominently features the iconic red poppy, a symbol synonymous with Remembrance Day and the profound sacrifices made during the war.

The Royal Australian Mint eloquently describes the significance of the Flanders poppy, representing loss, love, and the bloodshed endured during World War I. As the world commemorates the centenary of the Armistice, this coin pays homage to the solemn occasion when the guns fell silent 100 years ago.

At the coin's center, a striking red poppy takes prominence, serving as the international symbol of remembrance for the war's blood-soaked battlefields. Above, in two lines, are the inscriptions denoting the value and denomination: "TWO DOLLARS." Positioned at the center, the number "100" creatively incorporates the poppy into the first "0," emphasizing the centenary.

Below, the word "ARMISTICE" is accompanied by the significant date "11-11-11," representing the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, the precise moment when the armistice took effect, ending the hostilities of World War I.

The designer's initials, "TD" for Tony Dean, grace the upper right portion of the coin, adding a personal touch to this commemorative masterpiece.
