How exactly does distribution of coins from the mint work and is this published anywhere? e.g. Do they go to each capital city in the first instance or only to certain cities?


CTB used to receive the Coins direct from the Mint up until the 1990's(Keating Privatisation),they then distributed them to the other Banks.At least that's how I understood the system.
What City received what was based on need,as the Coins were in sealed bags there was no way of knowing dates etc.
These days apparently the Mint delivers them direct to Security Co.'s
who break the bags into rolls/bags before deliveries to Banks but Posters on here will know more about that distribution.

Some Historians/Researchers claim the 1930 Penny was first ID in Sydney during the 1940's Coin shortage.
They were found in Sydney at this time but the obvious flaw in that theory is that they may have been released elsewhere and migrated to Sydney.
The same applies to rare dates these days,no way of knowing where they were released originally,just as much chance of noodling a 'Red Poppy' in Perth or Sydney,or even 'woop woop', as anywhere else.
Noodlers just have to put in the time and get lucky.

You are at least 8 years too late to find 2012 red poppy or 2013 purple coronation in any kind of concentration.

That's my understanding too - Armaguard and Prosegur at least deliver rolls to banks - Chubb has too but not sure if they still do.
I'm not sure how they get from the mint to the security companies but I assume they have depots in New South Wales that accept new coins from the bank and distribute the rolled coins around the country from there.

Good one,local Tab manager has picked up 2 from the tills but none the last 3 or 4 years.
I had 6 in folders but sold 5 when they hit the $50 mark on Ebay,i thought it was another Ebay feeding frenzy that would fade away.
I couldn't believe it when they hit $100 and they have doubled+ since then.
My costliest mistake since I started collecting.

nah I don't really believe that a mistake basil you made money and you thought it was a reason profit to have gain. I made the mistake of actually deciding not to buy a 2018 commemorative set even though I like it at the time didn't buy at least one for collection because I just thought they sure going to release more and it was early in my collection days :[ . oh well you live and you learn

That's good going. Let's see how long it takes you to find another. I found my one and only red poppy in circulation back in 2013.

That means I've found more red poppies than firefighter coins.
