Unreal. I'm starting to suspect the mintage of each alphabet coins is under 1 million. I was going through some search and found 1985 10 cents, 3 COF 20 cents, 3x 2014 MOR dollar, a couple of coloured $2 coins. That doesn't include a few scarcer ANZAC dollar coins and 2019 Aus dollar coins. All I got was the first two letters of the alphabets after some intense search for the past couple of months!

That makes a hat trick ... still no letters! Only found one coin worthy of mention.

28th $100

Nothing again ... might have to think about sourcing my coins from another bank as maybe I'm just sorting through coins that I've returned?

The only coin worth mentioning in this lot is this 2017 ANZAC in above average condition.


Still on that dreaded 6!

29th $100

Still no letter coins ... or any other 2019 coins!
I've decided that if I don't find any more after the $3000 mark is reached then I'll try a different bank.

The only coin worthy of mention was this 1997 Sir Charles Kingsford-Smith.



Treading water on 6!

Shame it wasn't Kingsford-Smith over the map.
I found one of those in circulation a few years ago.

Yes I found a Kingsford Smith as well - mint marked C. It is always fun to find an NCLT whilst noodling.

Thanks for that Steve. I did a bit of googling and see that it was issued in a Dual Coincard Set.

Thanks karloning, I see now that they were also released as a single coin as well.

30th $100 - This marks $3000 worth of noodling

Still no letters so I'm definitely going to source my coins from a different bank tomorrow to see if that makes any difference.

Only two coins out of one hundred worthy of mention today!

2019 AUS - 'S' privy mark


2001 Centenary of Federation - nice condition


Still lingering on 6!
