Woolies will sell them carded, over the counter.
I will get one.
Then I will be on the lookout for them in pocket change, until I have two examples.

I keep all colored coins that I find and just throw them in a jar. Don't know why, I doubt if I will be able to make any profit on them.

New Zealand will win. The usually do. Rugby Union is a religion in New Zealand.

but yes, very poor quality.

Nancy, it's no worse than the one I got straight from a bag.

Mine is pretty decent, but then again I bought it in a collection and have none of these packaging items.
.
sel69 - You are right, but the All Blacks have had some down moments this past year and Ian Foster is a useless coach, losing 25 - 15 to the Pumas was a definite low point, despite the 36 - nil drubbing they got next.
.
You Aussies may be in with a fair dinkum chance, I blame all these league type - poor quality running back players we have and their culture means they play more combative strength rugby rather than intelligence or finesse laden rugby like the Pumas did.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

For Australian Rugby Union fans, winning the Bledisloe Cup is better than any R.U. World trophy.
Unfortunately, that doesn't happen anywhere near often enough.

Can someone please explain what the wallabies achieved in 2019 to deserve to have this coin minted.

Another example of the RAM releasing a coin for the sake of releasing a coin.

In 2019 there was the Webb Ellis Tropy, Rugby World Cup Tournament and Australia has won it twice in 1991 and 1999. There was anticipation they could do it again and thus this coin was a hype piece.

However they did not coming 2nd in their pool and losing to Wales in a pool game. They made the quarter finals and got thrashed by second place getters England.

It was Australia's worst ever result in a world cup.

The bad fortune continued for Australian rugby with them losing the Bledisloe cup for the 19th time, when they were thrashed by a half empty All Blacks side on Sunday.

Go Kiwi!

So basically this coin is a lasting reminder to how poor the wallabies are!

Did the kiwis mint a coin to commemorate their first ever cricket trophy when they won the World Test Championship earlier this year?

Also it was a woolworths coin and all their coins have either been sports related or children's entertainment.

Yeah I think Woolworths paid the mint for this coin to happen.
