the ambulance coin has one of the worst inking jobs on any of the coloured coins even poorer than the donation dollar.

I like the theme. Is that designed to be circulated?

Yes, it's a circulating commemorative coin.

New $2 Aboriginal flag coin released into circulation today.

25/11/2021

Media Release
Today, the Royal Australian Mint (the Mint) announced the release of a $2 commemorative circulating coin to mark 50 years since the first raising of the Aboriginal Flag in 1971.

Royal Australian Mint CEO, Leigh Gordon, highlighted the importance of the flag as a unifying symbol for Aboriginal Australians and the broader community.

"The Aboriginal Flag is a cherished symbol of contemporary Australian Aboriginal identity, unity and pride, and this commemorative coin will serve as an enduring acknowledgement of our shared history," said Mr Gordon.

The Australian Aboriginal Flag was first flown in 1971 at a land rights march in Adelaide's Victoria Square, and appeared again the following year at the beginnings of the Aboriginal Tent Embassy in Canberra.

The flag was defiantly carried by Cathy Freeman when she won gold at the 1994 Commonwealth Games, and in 2000 it flew atop the Sydney Harbour Bridge as more than 250,000 people marched in solidarity beneath it.

Harold Thomas' iconic flag design is strikingly represented on the coin with the black and red fields printed over a relief pattern of miniature flags. The centre of the coin has been left 'print-free' allowing the gold of the coin's alloy to shine through as a unique representation of the central yellow sun motif.

Two million of the 50th Anniversary of the Aboriginal Flag - 2021 $2 Coloured Circulating Coin will enter circulation over the coming months.

Seems like an eternity ago that they first released the mint set that included this $2 coin ... wonder why it took so long between then and now to put it into circulation?

Weren't there copyright problems with the design/designer of the flag?

Yes,and its still bubbling along,i think there is a test case or some other drama with a Country NSW Council being asked to pay for the right to fly it.
I can't find it on Google,lots of paywalls,but I remember a radio story on it a year or 2 back.

Yeah I remember the copyright issue and had forgotten about the $2 coin - I figured after a year they'd cut their losses, but I suppose they have a few million $2 coins they want to put into circulation one way or the other.
