Some photos from a noodle earlier in 2022. Sadly this was while my partner was in hospital and thus I lost the notes.




$2 noodle with numbers




$1 noodle

Sorry I lost the data, but these would be the $50 and $25 rolls so 25 of each coin.

I love COINS!!!

Moving down to the lower value coins


50 cents noodling, finding that Armistice coin was a very nice surprise, they are around $3 each on the open market. It was pretty much UNC too. My guess is some deparate collector needed some spending change recently. Well their loss is my gain!


20 and 10 cents - looks like this noodle was a better one than my last one.

Now I have to take $19.10 in change back to the bank

I love COINS!!!

1990 is the earliest coin you can find. That's sad.

You know that our large 5c to 50c were demonitised in 2006 and are now illegal. It seems 501s are not the only unwanted illegals in your country from ours.

1990 was the year our $1 and $2 were introduced, 2006 for the smaller coins.

If anything, it was because these coins were so worthless and people complained about their size. Something that has not hit Australia yet, where you guys in my opinion are heaving under the weight of useless and worthless cents coins.

I mean a 50 cent weighs 16 grams, but what can you actually buy with it?

All of the Pacific Islands except the French ones have switched to smaller steel coins like New Zealand.

Fiji 2009, Samoa 2011, Cooks 2015, Tonga 2015, PNG 2010s, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu recently and apparently the French places are thinking of it.

Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore also have smaller steel coins now too - so what is holding back Australia and its hanging on to heavy 1960s coinage based on a 206 year old template?

Nothing will change whilst QE2 is there,big changes in Oz. Coins/Notes when Charles is the Monarch but to what extent hasn't been revealed yet,if Labor is still in Govt. then they will be massive.

What a sad situation. I loved collecting the older style coins from these countries but I have lost interest since they switched. IMO steel coins have very little appeal.

Oh 3M, you are a scream, illegal to spend them - not own them. If all the old coins were illegal, we would be in deep doodoo!

As for Charles and Camilla being our rulers - I don't think so

You have far fewer coins to collect from circulation than we do in the UK. Here's a link to a similar UK coin 'noodle' I'm currently engaged in!

Cool, it seems this noodling bug is going around. Machinmachinman has done such a great job with Australia.

In the realms of Kiwi/Aussie rivalry - the Aussies have us licked here, NZ coins in circulation are way too easy to noodle - Australia is not, but its more fun.

The only 3 current circulation pieces that present any difficulty at all are.

1. 1997 $2 coins
2. 2015 Anzac 50 cent coin
3. 2018 Armistice 50 cent coin

And the last 2 are easily brought off Trade Me or Ebay.

More challenging would be finding any pre 2010 $1 or $2 in AU or UNC condition!!

I'm heading to the UK in 2023 and would love to do some noodling but think I'm stymied by the lack of a bricks and mortar bank account. Finding rocking horse poo will be easier than getting a bank account with which I can get coins. I'm hoping to wangle a friend to put my name on the holiday villa TV license but there's now talk of scrapping the TV license. Any ideas on how to get bulk coins at cost price?

DG - great, but that reply probably belongs in NumisRobs thread.

Can't believe the Brits still have TV licences! We scrapped them in 1999, when it got the point it cost more to chase up the non payers than the value of the licence fee.

Maybe that is why the British programmes are all like 58 - 59 minutes long per hour, where ours are 36 - 42 minutes per hour due to 4 minute long ad breaks every 10 minutes, opening and closing songs, programme trailers and mostly with American and Australian programmes - sections of them promoting whats on and repeating stuff over and over.

The actual meat of a 1 hour programme can be as little as 23 minutes!

When my brother-in-law first told me about the TV licenses I thought he was pulling my leg, but I later received conformation of their existence from one of my UK customers.

PT - I never knew you had TV licenses in NZ.
I read somewhere that in the UK auntie is broadcasting too many negative articles and news about the tories and BJ in particular so the proposed scrapping of the TV license would effectively shut auntie down. True or not?

I agree with the amount of original content in a 1 hour show getting less and less although we haven't yet reached the heights (or lows) of the USA. Personally, bar the odd sporting event, I haven't watched free to air TV for 15+ years. It was interesting during the last federal election reading about the political advertising. The Liberals/Nationals supposedly have on older voter base so channeled advertising money into TV whereas Labor had younger supporters so spent their money on Youtube ads and other internet based services. By not watching free to air and using a VPN, I pretty well managed to avoid all political dribble (I mean advertising).

Fun fact - If you love the old Muppet series, get the German release so you will get more bang for your buck. The creators had to make more Muppet material for German TV because they had less ads per time slot compared to USA.

My Niece is a Journo. and she said that was around the time Bureacrats in Aust. dug up legislation to re-introduce TV/Radio licenses and they also had a look at trying to slug the new technology of mobile Phones.
It was all dumped by Howard as he had his GST baby to introduce but shows,that like Death Duties, these taxes are never forgotten when a Govt. is chasing money.

Ha ha.. Remember in 2007 there was a rumour that the government wanted to introduce a tax on rain water? It still annoys me that our fuel includes an excise component and then GST that includes the excise. Doesn't matter how much the bureaucrats try to say that the excise is not a tax, it is. So we pay a tax on a tax every time we pump fuel.
I reckon increasing the GST will be the next major 'tax reform'.
