Three New $2 Coin Designs In Circulation Today

Three new types of $2 coins are being released today ahead of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Eight million of the coins will be put into circulation from now until April 4, with the designs landing via Woolworths.

Each design honours the Australian team, the host city, and mascot Borobi.

“The Royal Australian Mint has a proud tradition of marking our nation’s greatest sporting moments through coins, medals and medallions,” Royal Australian Mint CEO Ross MacDiarmid said.

“Capturing the essence of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, this unique seven coin set treasure will be a fitting symbol of the unity, athletic prowess, culture and passion that will be displayed on the Gold Coast in April 2018.”
