The yellow 2d without a watermark was issued on January 1, 1903, and the yellow 2d with an upright watermark was issued the same year.

The bright yellow stamp posted by Just_fella is listed in the Stanley Gibbons Australia catalogue as issued January, 1899 with watermark W crown A.
A rare inverted watermark also exists.
