I received some pretty coins from Australia










The tooth fairy kit contains a toothbrush, tooth chart, glitter pen, coin in a baggy, and a mirror so the little one can see their new smile

Ooops. I hit the post key too soon. I meant to say thank you very much Santa but neglected to do that before posting.

I was not aware that Australia updated their effigy of Her Majesty the Queen on their coinage. Thank you, Spott, for sharing these lovely photos! I bet that the custom declaration sticker shows that it is a tooth fairy kit! &

Meanwhile, my personal elf has a good news for us! This elf says that my package finally landed at its destination this morning. It might be until Tuesday or Wednesday before our receiver will see it in the mailbox! To this date, it has been a bit over one month for this package in reaching its destination.

Meanwhile, it does look like everyone had been good boy/girl!! Santa Claus clearly wants to keep the spirit of gift-giving going and decides everyone should be happy! Rightly so, especially with the pandemic and whatnots! & Heaps of thanks to our Santa for his hard work in keeping this annual tradition going! Not only that, thanks to all of the elves here as well!

Have a good weekend, everyone!

Good gracious I'm getting kinda worried at this point.

I sent it out December 7th, so it should be there any day now I would think.

To be fair, it did have to travel through several different countries.

My elf just whispered into my ear that the package is in my receiver's mailbox!

Hope this person would be nice to not name me....I forgot to call myself a Secret Santa. I know, I know....I will take a Santa test next time. :)

Mcshilling,

That is awesome of your Secret Santa! Some coins you have are interesting! It is always nice to see Canadian coins.

Are these coins from Netherlands Indies (present-day Indonesia)?

Enjoy them!!

Things are arriving for Australia, that means my one can not be far behind. Those were nice coins arriving.

Mine sent December 2, now Jan 17th = 46 days and still not arrived. Immigrant sailing ships covered the distance from London to New Zealand quicker in the 1870s.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

Prinetane,

It might take up to 2 or 3 months for a packet to arrive. I myself got a packet from my uncle in Scotland which he sent on 3rd November and it arrived on 7th January!

Yes, it is that bad with our post office here especially with international post. The ordinary post is fine, not packets.

I do hope things will improve later on this year.

Please do not worry, your packet will arrive this month or early February.
