2016 $2 Paralympic Coin
To honour the sporting elite who will be representing Australia in Rio de Janeiro at the Summer Paralympic Games the Mint has designed a special commemorative $2 coin. Courage, determination, inspiration and equality are the Paralympic values and this spirit is captured in the unique design of the coin.
The design embodies the International Paralympic Committee’s motto ‘Spirit in Motion’ featuring a moment in a wheelchair race at its dynamic best.
As the first Australian $2 coin to feature multiple colours, representative of the Australian Paralympic Committee logo, this coin captures the essence of the Paralympics.
