you know that there is still a clause in the Australian constitution that if New Zealand and the states agree that, New Zealand can join the federation of Australia, or maybe I just dreamt that up.

MMMan - There isn't, somewhere buried in the first two pages of this section is my short thread on Kiwi coin noodling at the start of 2021 - apart from the $1 and $2 which go back to 1990, our coins have only been minted on average 1 year in 2 since 2006 and even now the 2020 dated coins have not been released.

The main reason is lack of demand, the cents coins are small, scrappy and cheap. Another big reason is the Covid hysteria which several shops have banned the use of cash as they are worried they will catch Covid 19 - despite the fact coins can not spread it - the air does.

Ryurazu - Yes but I doubt we will join with Australia, our nations, peoples, destiny, political outlooks and styles of government are way to different. I mean if Australia is the USA, then we are definitely Canada if you get the drift.

If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

MMMan...great collection, my fingers are crossed that you find the 2005
I'm by no means a pro and will never claim to be...just my 2 cents

Standing video machine units of the late 1970s, early 1980s. Named after Space invaders, kiddie vernacular here led to the neologism - spacies.

Kind of Maori/poor people English - "Hey yuse fullas, want to play da spacies, got to get some 20 censes". I know I was one of those young Maori kids and we often got the coins from stealing people's milk bottle money (In the days when milk was home delivered, people left the money with the empty bottles - we were little tykes then).

The term stuck, slightly more refined english was the video games.

A 2005 for you!




Shown with the rest of NZ's 2005 dated coins with the rare 50 cents and more common $1 and $2.

I'll have to dig out my New Zealand coins which will help me here in Melbourne to look at something worth while, instead of looking through the bars on our windows.

Princetane I get your drift re Australia becoming a little Americanised. I hope we, in the Southern Hemisphere, can keep our unique, still unpretentious, cultures going and continue to exchanging thoughts and ideas between us across the ditch.

I can't imagine trying to explain to anyone from the Northern Hemisphere how Trevor Chappell displayed to both of our countries his peace guardian attribute qualities in 1981, can you?

Yes I did, back in 2006 I worked in a $2 store and the last day of large coins was Sep 30 2006 and as a result, people brought in bags of the things. Luckily I was the store manager then and had to count up the takings at the end of the day.

To my surprise in the $325(!!!) of 5 to 50c coins were 2 x 50c and 2 x 20c dated 2005. Needless to say I brought them that day. Also in the piles of rusted and green coins was a worn 1942 silver shilling.

I held on to the coins and last year sent Triggersmob a pair and kept the other one for myself.

Sweet! Too bad the days of finding those kind of coins in circulation over there are a thing of the past.

My pleasure!

You can buy lots on trade me occasionally - but most of the time they are overpriced, full of bad and damaged coins and often have been combed through for 2005s and other scarce dates like 1973, 1983 and 1984.

The OP has done FANTASTICALLY WELL to get that collection out of illegal immigrants circulating around Oz.

Well done - I've lost track of what I found in change and what I ended up buying but I would easily have found more than half in change.
The kiwis seems to outnumber the other design by a massive margin in change here though.
