Coins struck on a coin press at the Easter show or popup shows are called counterstamp coins and are a letter or shape(Map) in a circle on the coin.
Those coins sold on eBay from I.S. Wright are counterstamp coins and not Mint mark coins. You can tell as counterstamp coins are in circles.
Privy mark coins are in squares except the C one is a raised C.

Media Release
Today, the Royal Australian Mint (the Mint) launched a new initiative to get more Donation Dollars into the hands of Australian's in the lead up to Christmas
This initiative, which will be rolled out at newsXpress retail stores across the country from 24 November, encourages people to swap their change for Donation Dollars and increase charitable giving in the lead up to the Christmas holiday season.
Managing Director of newsXpress stores, Mark Fletcher said "We are excited to be working with the Royal Australian Mint on this important initiative. With nearly 200 stores across Australia, newsXpress can help get Donation Dollars into the hands of thousands of Australians in all parts of the country."
Royal Australian Mint CEO, Leigh Gordon, said rolling out this initiative through newsXpress stores will make Donation Dollar more accessible to Australians.
"We have minted one Donation Dollar for every Australian as a tangible reminder of the importance of giving back. Donation Dollars have been distributed through the banks since September 2020 with an estimated six million currently in circulation. While Australians will continue to come across Donation Dollars, this partnership with newsXpress means that Australians don't need to wait to find a Donation Dollar in their change, they can simply visit one of the newsXpress stores to get their hands on a Donation Dollar - making this hard working coins more accessible to all. Every dollar out in circulation, is another dollar working to make Australia better.
The coin is designed to be instantly recognisable with the words Give to Help Others and a green centre with a gold ripple design emanating from the centre symbolising the ongoing impact each donation dollar makes to those who need it most.
"Since its launch in September 2020, 2.8 million Australians have found and donated one or more donation dollars to a charity or a business or person in need. Independent research commissioned by the Mint shows that the average donation prompted by the Donation Dollar is $21, equating to approximately $59 million in donations generated by this initiative to date.
"I encourage all Australians to visit their nearest newsXpress store and swap their regular dollars for a Donation Dollar, or check their change, car consoles and saving jars for this very special coin. When you get your hands on a Donation Dollar, remember to donate it to someone in need, whether this is a charity, homeless person or struggling business," said Mr Gordon.
From today, Australians can head into their local newsXpress retail store and swap their dollars for Donation Dollars.

They are both the same.
You get 5c coins in the $2 rolls/ bags from both companies.
We get them from both companies just to make sure that if one company has a new release quicker than another you have a better chance of getting the new releases.
We dump the checked coins in a different town to not get the same ones back.

Coaster I don't have a link but they should be in the next Stamp Bulletin.
I did see something in a currency determination a couple of months ago.
The lady at the post office told me about them last week.
Not sure if I am allowed to post this information or not but as it has no images it should be ok.

A 4 coin Dinosaur set for $12 (No mintmarks). These coins will also be available in your change.

A 4 coin Dinosaur set for $20 with D, I, N & O mintmarks

A 4 coin Dinosaur proof set for $120

I use a small suitcase with wheels and a pull up handle.
That way people can't see what you have inside the suitcase.
