Check your wallet: Why these $2 coins are now worth and extraordinary amount after the Queen’s funeral
Two Australian $2 coins have soared in value hours after the state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II.
The 2012 Red Poppy and 2013 Purple Coronation coloured $2 coins are now worth at least $550 each following the death of Her Majesty on September 8.
The 2013 Coronation $2 coin spike is solely due to the passing of the Queen, according to a Perth coin and bank note expert
‘The coin’s price had jumped by 30-50 per cent immediately on the news of her passing and has stabilised since then,’ Joel Kandiah told Seven News.
