The 2012 Remembrance Day Red Poppy is the first of the Australian coloured $2 commemorative circulating coins.

This ‘C’ Mint marked coin available here, is the sister coin to the circulating type. On the 26th of October 2012, the Royal Australian Mint announced that “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. The coloured coin, of which there will be half a million, will be circulated nationally through the Returned and Services League (RSL) Red Poppy Appeal.

The non-coloured poppy coin, to be produced in a minimum run of five million, will be distributed through the normal channels via banks and retail outlets over the coming months.

Only one other country, Canada, has released coloured coins into circulation and the fact that we have added micro-lettering into the design showcases our world-class innovative capabilities”, said the Mint’s Chief Executive Officer Mr Ross MacDiarmid.

The ‘C’ Mintmark coin was available at the time for $12.95 (or for $19.95 from Australia Post in the postal numismatic covers) from the Royal Australian Mint. With 982 "C" Mint Marks graded at the time of listing, there are only 42 that are graded higher than this one.
