Non-coloured error = the coin somehow fell into a container of acetone


I suppose it was/is bound to happen.

Here in the US, Woolworths was a general merchandiser that went out of business several years ago. Is it the same concept still operating in Australia?

I collect Olympic coins....eBay and shipping USD $14.90 + $14.15 shipping sounds like a fair deal?

It is less than 10 days to go before we can cheer for our Aussie athletes in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games! To celebrate the long awaited games, in partnership with Woolworths, we are very excited to announce the release of special edition Olympic and Paralympic Team coins ahead of Tokyo 2020.

Six exclusive and unique coloured $2 coins will be available to collect. Five of the coins represent the five colours of the Olympic rings, plus a green and gold $2 coin that represents the Paralympic Games. Twelve million $2 coins will be available for customers to collect via Woolworths registers from this morning.

Can't wait to find these coins?

The coins can be purchased as a complete collection in one of three unique packaging designs. Two of the designs are available from the Royal Australian Mint and the third from Woolworths. If you purchase two or more folders from the Royal Australian Mint, you will receive a selection of both designs.

If you are eager to collect the Paralympic coin, the collection folder and coin will be available to purchase on 18 August 2021, from Woolworths and the Royal Australian Mint.

@Greasy Fingers -Hmmm..is your CCF e-mail up to date? I can send to you for $18 USD. Can pay via coins (preferred method). Send me an e-mail via CCF as I'm sure we're not allowed to discuss trades on this thread (sorry mods!)

@david hmmm didn't know that, figured they where already minted last year, just not released to the general public. Yeah also watch out for the bank baggies.

If David isn't able to do trade or payment is too problematic I can be backup. I do have PayPal account and willing to accept USD at the moment.

I got mine on Wednesday.
It seems like they have been available (sort of) for a while now though? Someone found the Olympic coin with T20 paint last February but they were only officially released this week right?

Which do you think are better?

2016 coins



or 2020
Thought I had a shot of them, but obviously not.

My opinion is I like the new ones more, they look lighter and cuter, although the 2016's have a lot of detail.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

Tough call.
I think I prefer the designs on the 2016.
Although the colours are nicer on the 2020.
