The Royal Australian Mint has issued 'Lest We Forget' circulating commemorative $2 coin in remembrance of Anzac Day 2017. Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand that broadly commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders "who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations" and "the contribution and suffering of all those who have served". Observed on 25 April each year, Anzac Day was originally to honour the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli against the Ottoman Empire during World War I.
In addition to the coin which will be entering circulation, there is also a special collector's version bearing the “C” mintmark to the left of the reverse design. This coin is minted to an uncirculated finish and sold on a printed folder. The coin, specifically produced at the Canberra Mint, has a total mintage of 40 000. An Australia Post PNC with a low mintage of 9000 has also been produced that contains the coin. A PNC or Postal Numismatic Cover is a joint release by the Mint and Australia Post. It is an envelope usually with a design and a stamp, postmark and a coin insert.
