A new $2 coin is being released to commemorate the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who have served in the military.

Is being released in April ahead of Anzac Day. What's the bet they'll be on EBay before they turn up in circulation.

It is also getting released in a limited edition PNC(7000) by Auspost on 13th April not sure if the PNC coin has a unique privy mark. You can order these at your post office now.

Joker didn't even bother removing the coin dealer logo from the pic. Selling at 350% markup from dealer price. I guess ticket scalpers have to find a new income with event organisers cracking down on scalping.

I see the RAM has taken the carded coin off it's website. It was marked unavailable and now is no longer there

Nice design, definitely the year for Indigenous themed coins. I try not to use the "A word" as my lecturer in a uni course I did in 1997 said it is a degrading term and I agree.

I am reading a book called the Macquarie Atlas of Indigenous Australia, very interesting.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

I read the other day that its release into circulation is on hold while copyright issues are sorted out.

Has anyone come across a 2021 $2 Indigenous Military Service coin in the wild yet?

I haven't seen any reports of it or the aboriginal flag $2 being found in the wild yet. There are going to be a lot of $2 coloured coins about in theory soon there are these two, the fire one from earlier in the year, 5 Olympic ones coming on Wednesday and photos have surfaced of barrels of wiggles coloured coins (I think at least 3 in the set) destined for circulation.

On a side note I went to the mint about a month ago and they still had the carded c stamped indigenous service coins in the gift shop.

Looks very nice, notice the colourful part fills the centre of the coin other than the outside (Cool).

Not holding my breathe on seeing this one in the wild. I have 1 paralympics coin that I got from the work till, otherwise I haven't seen another specimen. I have yet to see a fireman coin in the wild. I may have to buy the indigenous service coin on ebay. There are heaps on sale already (as usual).

Turns out the wiggles set is going to be bigger then I thought

30th anniversary of the wiggles (coloured coins) - Mostly likely a Woolworths release
$1 Wiggles logo
$1 Big red car
$2 Captain feather sword
$2 Wags the dog
$2 Dorothy the dinosaur
$2 Henry the octopus

Also there is meant to be an ambulance coloured $2 this year
