I guess Australia post just doesn't want people to declare "this is money - Rob me!" mails.

Otherwise RAM, Perth Mint and coins dealers have no means to sell coins around the country.

International postage is not cheap so it has to be rather high value coins to make it worthwhile. I believe the current $2 color coins are in very high demand. Problem is how you pack it. When I get coins from Russia or from ex Soviet countries, they used to cut holes in cardboard and packed them in there. Thickness of mail does count too so its a bit tricky

The consensus seems to be not to bother trying to send overseas.

That's not at all what I believe. My point was that Australia Post seems to have unreasonably restrictive handling "rules" compared to many countries. I have shipped coins from the US to Australia, Canada, Great Britain and Russia. I have also received coins from many countries.

In my opinion it is a waste of time and effort to sell coins to overseas countries, especially in bulk. The postage is far too high and finding an overseas buyer is not as easy as it may seem.

My most recent purchase was 11 coins from a seller in Germany and the combined shipping was $2. It does take patience, but that goes for many coin types. Apparently, the seller knows how to make money in this situation. As long as I get the 11 coins in a few weeks, I'm happy.
