Australia - Two Cents Category Description
The Australian two-cent coin
The Australian two-cent coin was introduced on 14 February 1966 and was the coin of the second-lowest denomination until it was withdrawn from circulation in 1992 (along with the one-cent piece). It is still counted as legal tender, but is subject to some restrictions. The original reverse design has not been changed since the introduction.
Two cent coins were produced by the Royal Australian Mint, the Royal Mint, Melbourne, the Royal Mint, Perth, the Perth Mint and the Royal Mint, Llantrisant. The 2 cent coin was the last circulating coin for Australia struck outside the Royal Australian Mint.
The cessation of issue of one and two cent coins was announced by the Treasurer in his Budget Speech of 21 August 1990.
