Where are they and how much are they worth? Has anyone got one?

The RAM minted 0.008M, what is that? 8,000?

Yes it is 8,000 pieces, but the problem is, to the best of my knowledge, noone ever found one in circulation or elsewhere.

It is commonly believed that these coins are non-existent.

UPD.

Here is the good article on this topic. Apparently few were minted as mint sport , but certainly not 8000.

Good read, I've never found one myself and searched everywhere, cant find any previous sale items or known coins being hed onto, so far it appeears to never reach circulation.

I'd like to think the same as well. It is quite unlikely that any 1992 dollar coin exist considering so many collectors searching and it's far easier to find NCLT.

In 1992 one of the collector coin sets that was issued was the Australian One Dollar Five Coin Set. This set included restrikes of past dollars including mob of roos dollars dated 1984 and 1985 and the commemorative dollar for 1992 which was the Barcelona Olympic coin. Maybe an error in the RAM financial report declaring their production statistics was made and these coins have been misidentified in the report.


I don't think that it was an error. Even though the coins had a date of 1984 and 1985 they were struck in 1992 and hence would appear in the 1992 RAM annual report.
The $1 five coin set issued in 1992 would be the most logical explanation for the 8000 MORs minted in 1992.

Apparently one was found and sold ages ago at an auction :

"Well the odd one has. Back in February 2012 in Downies Australian Coin Auctions number 310 lot number 2493 was described as one dollar 1992 with mob of roos reverse struck on a partially prepared proof blank, as struck and extremely rare estimate $750 and sold for $1,000 ($1190 inc buyers premium). Collectors can recall a few others appearing for sale every now and then but these can be counted on one hand. This suggests they were struck as "mint sport" and not part of the elusive 8,000 circulation coins that have been misplaced!"

Not too bad ey .. you have one dollar and then BAM.. you have $1000 dollars.

Someone apparently bought one off downies. Thought I might just chuck an update. I also called the mint and the woman who answered said she they must've made 8,000 because it said it on the website. However, I dont think she was taking me too seriously and didnt seem to care :(

Yes there was a sale in the last few years that actually showed images of the coin for the first time: https://www.coincuriosity.com/view/...-dollar.html
