Two Dollars 2021 Australian Ambulance Services (Green), Coin from Australia
CoinTwo Dollars 2021 Australian Ambulance Services (Green)

The Australian two dollar coin denomination was introduced on 20 June 1988, when it replaced the banknote of the same value. The regular reverse design by Horst Hahne features a representation of the head and shoulders of a traditional Australian Aboriginal elder.

The denomination is also extensively used to issue circulating commemorative $2 coins such as this one, many of them coloured.

The Royal Australian Mint issued this coin to honour the Australian Ambulance Services.

The Mint says about it:
From humble and disparate beginnings amongst the separate Colonies of 19th Century Australia, our ambulance services have evolved into one of the most effective, proficient and far reaching paramedic networks in the world. From the busy urban centres, the vast regional and rural districts, to the remote outback, over 33,000 paramedics, communication centre operatives, researchers, analysts, corporate staff and volunteers provide unrivalled service to foster and build the health and well-being of all Australians. We all share the feeling of concern as we see an ambulance speed past with it flashing lights and sirens blaring - someone is hurt and needs help. The Royal Australian Mint proudly honours the tireless and stoic paramedics who provide help in our hour of need, when seconds count.

Coins issued in 2021 have now been in circulation for less than one year.

Effigy of the ruling monarch, legend.

On the left, in small letters on the Queen's shoulder, the artist's initials J.C (for Jody Clark).

Running continuously around the rim is the monarch's legend, the date of issue and the face value: ELIZABETH II · AUSTRALIA 2021 · 2 DOLLARS ·.
