This reminds me so much of what the Royal Canadian Mint has been doing for years. I apologize if our mint "infected" the RAM with coin madness.

However, the coin market here is quite different and most of circulation type special issues remain modestly priced even 20 years later. I have not heard of mass hoarding of some of the colorized coins.

The Coronation coin, something I guess, the standard coin is nasty - Face value if you are lucky (Spend it)

Lest we forget - in that condition $2.31?
Coronation, its the most scarce, but yours is stained - so $25 - $50 I guess.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

I have seen good Coronation $2 coins selling in Facebook groups for $30.
If it had the C mintmark it would be a lot more.
I would agree with Tane on the Lest We Forget coin, $2 to $3.
The standard $2 coin is nothing special. Some people are under the
impression that if the designers initials (HH) are not shown, then
the coin is valuable. This is not the case, as initials were only
on the first 2 years anyway.

I've seen quite a few coloured $2 coins listed on Facebook recently though I haven't looked closely enough to see if they're selling.

While adding some of the Tokyo olympic $2 to my set I realised that the complete set of circulating two dollar coins can no longer fit into a single 72 pocket sheet.

From 1988-2011 there were only 23 circulating $2 issued (all aboriginal elder). With the introduction of commemorative and coloured coins, 2012-2021 has seen another 50+ issued.

Goodness knows how big an album will be required over the coming years to keep up with this crazy $2 mania!

Taken out of circulation from pocket change only:
31 different designs (types) of Two Dollar colored coins.

When I get two examples of each, I return all triplicates back into circulation.

That is so strange Machinmachin man, I have one of those cheapo VST albums that has 24 pocket pages and it has 7 of them. The album has printed spaces for coins up to 2018's Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

Pretty much I have just added to it, and can keep spares on a blank page, happy as I will be good until about 2030 at least!

Adding 2019 to 2021 (Olympics and standard 2021 coin only, the Aboriginal themed coins will take out most of page 4!

But you are right, the first page of 24 coins conveniently goes up to 2010 (2 extra slots for the Maklouf and Broadley effigies! and the first coloured coins are in the top row of Page 2 (The plain rose and coloured rose).

If you include 3 coins for effigies (Maklouf, IRB and Clark), and also 2 x 2019 standard coins (IRB and Clark effigies) I have filled 76 spaces and with the 2 aboriginal coins - 78, although I heard the forces coin has been stopped - so space 78 will be the Parlaympics coin.

I had 07 October written down as a reminder but not sure where I read that now?

It will be the same as the Police and Firefighters released for circulation, but will be hard to get as no popup shops to get them.

I noodled plenty of Police coins (a bit scarce now) but have yet to see a single Firefighter coin in the wild.
