Poll Question
Due to a semi successful revival of the 2012 thread, "54 days of Australian Predecimal coins thread"

Should we have a "Coin of the day thread" for Australian and New Zealand coins.

If so, Predecimal or Decimal or even both.

I know they made gold sovereigns and holey dollars, but common sense would prevail to start with 1910, the year Australia got its silver coinage and go right through to now.

It would be either

1 year per day (We would exclude 1965 as no coins dated that year for Australia, but they did issue coins in New Zealand that year).

1 year per day but starting in 2020 and heading backwards like with the main coin of the year poll in the main coin forum.

Also would we allow

1. Australian and New Zealand coins or only Australian (It will be only Australian between 1910 and 1932!)

2. One coin per member per year, per country or as many coins per day as you like, the more you have the better.

Choose an option and explain in a post of you want to retrict or allow any number of coin images per year.

PS The 54 days thread is still on 1962 and 3 days to go (November 5th).

I voted to start with decimal, as I think more people would be able to participate.
Aus and NZ of course.

Fair enough.

At this stage, I think Decimal start, but we start in 2020 and head backwards, so we eventually reach the Predecimal era.

Just 5 votes, keep em coming guys, will post a link on the standard thread too!

It's obvious no one minds Kiwi coins joining the thread either, TrueBlue Cobberoo meets Fush n Chups unity.

Hopefully, there will be an extra day at the end where we can post an assortment of the pre-1910 sovereigns (including my only shield-back sovereign, from 1882).

More than that, when we reach 1910, we will keep going back to 1855 Sydney mint sovereigns, 1852 Adelaide Pound and then Holey dollars if you want.

I'll have to stop at 1910, but I look forward
to seeing what other people have.

Weird uncertain idea: maybe the thread should cover the entire Oceania area, including not just Australia and New Zealand, but also, e.g., Fiji.

I have maybe a half dozen pre-1910 coins (all sovereigns, no tokens) of interest. Do others here have enough to keep the thread active for 2+ months after 1910?

Maybe the early part of this thread could be 1 decade per day? (190X, 189X, 188X, etc.)

Note: I won't be a big contributor to this thread, since I don't have all that many coins from Australia (or NZ).

Well looking at the current thread, its really dropped to 2 or 3 contributors now we are well before the big coin issuing age of post 1800.

Very few places were issuing coins in 1730 that people still have decent quantities of except specialists and the super well off, yet we insist on one day a year. The average collector usually has an abundance of post 1900 coins, a handful of late 1800s and only speckled coins before 1800.

I may look into that suggestion though so we have 1910, 1900 - 09, 1890 - 99, 1880 - 89, 1870 - 79, 1860 - 69, 1850 - 59, and 1800 - 49 for those with proclamation coins and holey dollars.

I would extend some decades to two days, if we get a run of tokens in the 1850s to 1880s as both countries issued heaps of tokens.

That means the thread would last 117 days or just under 4 months.

Disappointed to see 3 no votes.

No poll is necessary willing to start, however I reckon it should be a whole week for first few decades (if 2020 is start) since you are going to have much more and the days when you pass the 1900's

I think people have misinterpreted the question

Option one is not "I don't want this poll", it means "I don't want this thread at all".

Hope that clears up confusion.

Provisionally we are looking at a November 20th start and that will bring us to 1910 around April 10th and then play it by ear for earlier decades, if coins keep coming in, we extend it, if they don't, we move on to the next one.

The other option may be
1. One day a year back to 1910
2. Two years per day between 1909 and 1852
3. One week for pre 1852 coins.

Have been really busy with end of year stamp club stuff, so if okay with you, will put off the start date until December 1st.
