2 dollars 2022 - Frontline Workers

The Royal Australian Mint released a new circulating coloured 2 dollars to honour the Australia's Frontline Workers related to the last 2 years of the global pandemic event.

The reverse features 12 Frontline Workers including doctor, policeman, researcher, teacher and grocer. 2 millions of this coin were made and released.

Our front line workers have supported and protected Australians over the last two years, showing incredible resilience and exemplifying the Australian spirit.

If the pandemic has taught us anything, it's that we often don't realise the value of the people we have relied on to get us through the pandemic. It's time to shine a spotlight on those who work in essential services, and who have kept our society connected and functioning during these extraordinary times

The Mint has a proud history of commemorating significant events and people who have made an impact in Australia. The new Frontline Workers coin adds to this history.

Every time someone receives this coin in their change, they will be reminded of the perseverance and service of Australia's Frontline Workers.

- Leigh Gordon, CEO of the Royal Australian Mint
