Noodled $130 of 50c ... no 1966 or 1985

Found some nice upgrades that look like they came out of someone else's 50c collection.

I have two examples of of every commemorative 50 Cents that has been issued into circulation.
All obtained from pocket change at face value, over a period of about 4 years. All are common, but some have been much harder to find

Day 45

Went through a $200 bag of 50c but didn't find what I was looking for.

The 2019 JC and IRB coat of arms 50 cent coins have mintages of 0.88 and 1.05 million respectively but I usually find them in the ratio of 5 JC to every 1 IRB, like these I found today.



Still looking for 1966 and 1985.

Day 52

Went through another $200 worth of 50c - no '66 or '85.

The older style fiji 50 cent coin was the only other coin in the world to have the same weight and dimensions as the Aussie 50c. I am always glad to find them in circulation here in Australia because their mintages are a lot lower than ours.

Today I found a Fiji 1987 50c (mintage 160,000)


Also found this 2001 CoF coat of arms with extreme doubling on the date and AUSTRALIA on the obverse.

Nice - the Fijian 50c pieces really don't pop up a lot to start with.

Noodled $50 worth of 50c coins. Nothing of interest except this lovely high grade 1977 Silver Jubilee coin.
