and then some!
So, unless you don't know, my goal for this thread is to try and find every single coin issued for general circulation in Australia, by year's end. Kinda like DG's (unsuccessful) wavy hunt and 3M's Big Noodle.
I guess there's only one rule here, being that the coin must be obtained from circulation. Anything else (eg. bought or obtained from a non-roll source) must be mentioned separately. I do have a contact at my local bank that is keeping an eye out for some coins too.
I'll also mention any foreign coins I find or buy, or any NCLT stuff that ends up in a roll. This is mostly the Great Aussie Coin Hunt sets, but there are plenty other dollar NCLTs and some 20c ones too.
I do have a bit of a head start, as I have noodled every single five cent, ten cent and Twenty Cent
from circulation, but just for the record here's some stats on which coins need to be noodled:
2019 JC (in good condition, the one I have is darkened)
Any old years in a good grade Twenty Cents
Some of the oldest years without the disgusting stains
2001 ACT 20 cent (in good condition, mine is disgusting)
2000 Millennium Incuse (scarce)
2019 Hunt Letters: B, C, E, F, H, I, J, M, N, O, Q, S, T, U, V, W, X, Z
2021 Hunt Letters: A, B, F, H, I, P, U, V, W, X, Y, Z
2022 Hunt Letters: G, H, I, K, L, O, R, T, W, Y
2012 Red Poppy (very very unlikely)
2016 Blue Olympics
2016 Black Olympics
2016 Yellow Olympics
2017 Pink Possum
2018 Red Commonwealth
2018 Blue Commonwealth
2020 Black Olympics
I hope you will all join me on this year long journey to complete my quest.
One last word; if I do not complete this goal by years end, that's fine. I'll just create a part two thread for 2024 and continue from there!
