Public Urged To Return Old Coins Before Year End

The public have been urged to start returning the existing $2 coins to a bank branch nearest to them before December 31.

This comes as the new $2 coin comes in circulation from November 3 which is from next Monday.

Reserve Bank of Fiji Governor Barry Whiteside said has confirmed that all existing $2 coins received back from circulation will be returned to the suppliers for destruction.

This change is in response to earlier public calls regarding the difficulty experienced in distinguishing between the current $1 and $2 coins.

The new $2 coin will be slightly larger and thicker than the existing $1 and $2 coins.

It will have a new ‘Spanish Flower’ (an inside cut) .

While the designs on both sides of the new coin remain unchanged, these have been raised slightly and made more prominent so that these can be easily felt.
