Finally decided to head to my local CBA and grab some bulk coins. Got 2x $500 in $1 coins and $800 in $2 coins. Have recorded the numbers of each date for those who want to see them but will otherwise stick to the commemorative coins.
The $1 coins.....
About 35% of the coins were commemoratives as follows:
2002 (Year of the Outback) 44
2005 (60th Anniversary of World War II - Peace) 40
2014 (100 Years of ANZAC) 26
1997 (100th Anniversary of Charles Kingsford Smith) 24
1996 (100th Anniversary of the Death of Sir Henry Parkes)23
1999 (International Year of Older Persons) 21
2001 (100th Anniversary of Federation) 21
1986 (International Year of Peace) 20
1993 (Landcare Australia) 17
2008 (Centenary of Scouting) 17
2007 (APEC Australia) 13
2010 (100th Anniversary of Girl Guides) 13
1988 (Australian Bicentenary) 11
2009 (Centenary of Pensions) 9
2016 (100 Years of ANZAC) 6
2001 (International Year of Volunteers) 5
2003 (Australia's Volunteers) 5
2011 (Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting) 5
2018 (100 Years of ANZAC) 5
2017 (100 Years of ANZAC) 4
2003 (100th Anniversary of Women's Suffrage) 2
2019 (Coin Hunt F) 1
2019 (Coin Hunt H) 1
2019 (Coin Hunt M) 1
2018 (XXI Commonwealth Games Gold Coast) 1

Highlights included near UNC coins for Charles Kingsford Smith, Women' Suffrage and Henry Parkes. Must admit I find the Henry Parkes coin somewhat flat and ugly, even having seen it in near UNC. Also got enough 2019 A,U,S privy coins to complete several sets. . Plus a cud error on a MOR. Not into collecting cud errors but hopefully will e able to swap it later on. The commonwealth games coin was also awesome.

The $2 coins:
About 20% of the coins were commemoratives as follows:

2018 (Lest We Forget - Eternal Flame) 3
2020 (Lest We Forget - 75 Years since end of WWII) 3
2018 (Invictus Games Sydney 2018) 2
2012 (Remembrance Day - Plain Poppy Flower) 1
2016 (Australian Olympic Team - Blue) 1
2018 (XXI Commonwealth Games - Emblem) 1
2018 (XXI Commonwealth Games - Team Logo) 1
2019 (Lest We Forget - Mr Squiggle 60 Years, Bill) 1
2019 (Remembrance Day - Police) 1
2019 (Rugby World cup) 1

Highlights included the Olympic Blue and 3 2020 75 years. I didn't have either and I was refusing to pay an ebayer more than $2 for the 75 year of peace coins.

Off to the bank during the week to return this lot and get some more. Will need to shuffle different branches so I don't get the same ones back!!

A good overall result David, especially with the $2 finds ... I've found the 2019 Rugby World Cup and 2020 75th Anniversary of the End of World War II very hard to come by.

You'll have to cash them back in and do it again next weekend!

Yes, was surprised by the number of commemoratives in both lots.

Am taking the remainder coins back this afternoon and will get some more this week. Only problem is the branch with the big coin coiunter in in a large shopping centre. There seem to be less and less stand-alone branches. I think it's a bad move for banks to be investing in such places as I suspect large shopping malls will be dead in 20-50 years. It's already happening for smaller malls.

Sounds like fun, I found when I was there last, dealing out the spare dollars in the pokies helped.

We would never have the same fun in New Zealand, no commem $1 or $2 and both commem 50 cent coins are basically never found in change.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

Princetane - Ha.. you have just given me a cunning plan (you could almost put a tail on it and call it a weasel!). I wonder if you could load some money into pokies and hit collect without playing to receive the change. My thinking goes along the lines that pokey addicts are more likely to put NCLT and other good coins into the machines. I'm not a regular pokey player (actually haven't touched a pokey since the odd flutter after a round of golf 6 years ago) so not sure if this would work on todays pokies.

That's a shame. I do love your bird coins. Not sure if you know but NZ as discovered by the Maoris was a chunk of evolutionary history that is now partly gone. When most of the dinosaurs went extinct there was a brief time the feathered dinosuars (now called birds) evolved and dominated the fauna around the world. The avian domination of the globe would end with the evolution of mammals except in NZ where mammals never evolved. This was still the state of play when the Maoris arrived. Unfortunately the actions of Maoris and subsequent white settlers mostly destroyed the unique fauna of NZ. Still, I'm surprised that the Moa doesn't appear as a commemorative circulating coin. Also curious why the Waitangi crown was issued in 1935 and not 1940.

So just finished my first bunch of 50c pieces (actually 2 batches of $100 and $150 so 500 coins in total but results combined). Although I have quite a few pieces already it was the first time I entered my collection into Numista and was on the lookout for varieties. Around 24% were commemoratives (with 1 Fijian 50c ring in) as follows:

1970 (Captain Cook) 1
1977 (Silver Jubilee) 6
1982 (Brisbane Commonwealth Games) 14
1988 (First Fleet Bicentenary) 2
1994 (Year of the Family) (Narrow date) 5
1995 (Year of the Family) (Wide date) 1
1995 ("Weary" Dunlop) 5
1998 (Bass & Flinders) 9
2000 (Millennium) 4
2001 (Federation - Australia COA) 19
2001 (Federation - Australian Capital Territory) 1
2001 (Federation - New South Wales) 1
2001 (Federation - Tasmania) 2
2001 (Federation - Victoria) 1
2002 (Year of the Outback) 6
2003 (Volunteers) 3
2004 (Student Design) 5
2005 (Commonwealth Games Melbourne 2006) 13
2005 (Remembrance - End of World War II) 12
2010 (Australia Day) 4
2014 (AIATSIS) 3
2016 (50th Anniversary of Decimal Currency) 1

Highlights included:
A nice 2004 Student design (missing from collection)
Nice 1994(narrow date), 1996 and 2006 specimens
2001 federation Tasmania (missing from collection)
1994 year of family wide date (missing from collection)
Both 1979 and 1980 double bar varieties (missing from collection).

Still hunting the 2000 Millennium incused and 1994 fat dates. I also have to admit on several occasions I got excited picking up a 1977 only to flip it and see the jubilee.

Now for the next $2 coin batch....

heard a few mules $1 dollar, were found in pokies/RSL clubs.

also heard that bank tellers (AUS), especially the more numismatically inclined would replace the star notes that they found and replace them with a note from their pocket. just rumours though I have no evidence that this is true.

David, sorry I forgot your questions there in the text. I was too busy getting into the coin noodling. Until 2006 I would regularly go through piles of coins trying to get the best of every date.

About Waitangi Crown, originally it was planned for 1933 when the rest came out, but design delays held it up 2 years.

Many think it was to celebrate the Treaty of Waitangi, in fact it was to celebrate the handing over of the Treaty Reserve (The ground at Waitangi where the Treaty House is located) to the nation by the then Governor General, Lord and Lady Bledisloe in 1934, it was announced in 1933.

Anyway it was handed over in 1934 to the nation and made a National reserve, except the local Maori tribe took it over in the 1990s and turned it into a fun park type attraction and charge $15 to get in (Free for local Maoris and less for other Maoris like me - I think it sucks, should be free for all Kiwis).

The treaty house itself is a pre fabricated cottage from England that was bought over by the English resident at the time James Busby in 1834. It has been restored after an archaeological excavation in 1998 and you can go through it with restored rooms (A wee bit like original government house in Parramatta).

In addition is the grounds with the flag pole in which the Union Jack was hoisted (Not the one cut down by Hone Heke (That is across the channel in Russell), and a large carved Canoe from 1990, the carved meeting house with carvings from every tribe in NZ built in 1940 and also you have landscaped grounds and a series of trees that were planted by every governor general since 1934.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.
