2014 Remembrance Day $2 Coloured graded MS65 by PCGS

This coloured $2 Remembrance Day circulation coin features a centrally-sculpted design element of a dove in full flight carrying an olive branch - both recognised symbols of peace. The symbolic design was also inspired by the Australian Commonwealth Military Forces' original 'Rising Sun' badge. The distinctive shape of the rays that appear on the badge worn on the upturned brim of a slouch hat is commonly identified with the Spirit of ANZAC.

At 11 am on 11 November 1918 the Armistice was enacted and the combat across the battlefields of the First World War ceased. After four long years of conflict the world was again be at peace. Since then Remembrance Day has held a special meaning in the hearts of Australians.

The reverse design features rays of light inspired by words from The Ode of Remembrance 'At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them.' The Ode is drawn from the poem For the Fallen by the English poet Laurence Binyon published in London in The Winnowing Fan: Poems of the Great War in 1914. This verse which became The Ode for the Returned and Services League has been used in association with commemorative services in Australia since 1921
