2018 $2 Eternal Flame Al-Br Coin Pack
A BEACON OF LIGHT AND INSPIRATION
Vivid, poignant and superbly struck, the brand-new 2018 $2 Eternal Flame Al-Br Coin Pack is a stirring tribute to those who fought - and those who were lost - during times of conflict. Fans of the Royal Australian Mint's coloured $2 coins will be mesmerised by the eye-catching, full-colour motif on display. With a message for all Australians, this legal tender release is the whole package: affordable, meaningful and a visual delight.
AUSTRALIAN LEGAL TENDER FROM THE HOME OF CIRCULATING COINAGE
The Royal Australian Mint has provided Australia with circulating coinage since the swinging 60s. Its knack for relevant, meaningful coin design and its trademark exacting strike have earned it a stellar reputation in international numismatics. And the Al-Br coin featured in this superb pack is no exception.
VIVID FULL-COLOUR MOTIF
Australian coloured $2 coins are immensely popular fare amongst collectors. Since its first coloured circulating $2 was released in 2012, the RAM has provided several noteworthy examples - but the symphony of colour and symbolism on display here proves that it is not afraid to evolve and develop.
The Australian War Memorial's Eternal Flame rests within the Pool of Reflection in the Memorial's courtyard. It is a moving symbol for remembrance in Australia: constantly burning, never to be extinguished. Just as we will never forget those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in times of War. Based on a prototype by sculptor Lee Kossatz, the Eternal Flame has been installed at water level - this way, it looks as though the flames themselves are gently rising from within the pool's depths. Conveying this sense of contrast in legal tender would be no mean feat. But through piercing blue, dusky red and golden hues, the RAM's $2 coin captures both the flames and the pool brilliantly.
COMMEMORATES THOSE LOST IN TIMES OF CONFLICT
Released in the lead-up to April 25th, the 2018 $2 Eternal Flame Al-Br Coin Pack is a timely reminder of the immense courage and sacrifice made by Australians in the line of duty. An estimated 102,825 Australian servicemen and women have lost their lives during service with Australian units. The Eternal Flame burns for all of these courageous people, and it burns bright.
Each of the Royal Australian Mint's superb Eternal Flame $2 Al-Br coins is housed in superb, credit card-style pack, making viewing and storing your new acquisition a breeze.
