Just thought I'll compile the $2 coins that I pulled from circulation. I forgot to take photos of the 2016 decimal coinage and 2019 invitus games. I'm sure I found a Borobi the other day - probably lying around somewhere.

My personal 2 favorite coins are these:






Rest of the coins can be seen here.

I've pulled a couple of purple coronation from circulation. The last one was back a couple of years ago.

Nice. I've got a few from circulation but not many. I can't remember which but one seemed to be more common than the rest.

I have managed to assemble a complete set in duplicate of issued for circulation only $2 colored commemorative coins. All taken from circulation at face value.
Some of them have come from Woolworths, on or nearly after the day they they were issued.

Collection is live and growing, inasmuch as new coins are added as they are issued.

Same for all other commemorative coins of all the other denominations as well, since the start of decimal coinage in 1966. Started the collection in my teenage years.

You end up learning a lot about Australia's Heritage, if you study the historical background behind each issue.
