The $2 Coin replaced the $2 banknote on 20th June, 1988. At the time no one liked it.

“When red-blooded Australian coins get together in a pocket, they jingle about. Clink and clank, metal against metal, so a pocket sounds reassuringly moneyed. Two dollar coins, en-masse click like plastic buttons.”

Coloured commemorative $2 coins introduced in 2012 began a new era for the two dollar coin and sparked great interest in the public. Mums and dads, young and old, began to collect them, busily seeking out those elusive dates and designs.

View a mini exhibition of $2 coins released since then. The first was the Remembrance Day coloured poppy. Its loose change value is up to $100. Some collectors will pay up to $600 for an uncirculated one, just to complete a collection. The next commemorative was for the 60th Anniversary of Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. This coin from your loose change is worth $50. In uncirculated condition brings around $200.
