The 2012 Remembrance Day Red Poppy is the first of the Australian coloured $2 commemorative circulating coins. 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 coin was available at the time for $10.00 with many glued to a RSL donation card with many sold directly to the public by the RSL in roll. With 749 Circulation strikes graded at the time of listing, there are only 71 graded higher.
