On the 29th of September 2019, it will be the 30th anniversary of the National Police Remembrance Day - to remember and honour Australia's police officers who have died in the line of duty. This 2019 Two Dollar coloured 'C' mintmark uncirculated coin commemorates this anniversary and recognises the sacrifices made by Australia's police forces from the past to the present day.
National Police Remembrance Day is held every year on the 29th of September. The significance of the date 29 September being 'the feast of St. Michael the Archangel, patron saint of police and peacemakers'.
The observance of National Police Remembrance Day grants police the opportunity to commemorate their fallen colleagues and ensure their legacies are preserved, enables family members to grieve and honour their loved ones, and act as a reminder to the public of the ultimate price that police might be called upon to pay, as they protect and serve the Australian people.
