Hi everyone,

Started to noodle Australian 5 cents a few days ago and would like to compile a list of coins to lookout for.

So far on my list is:

1966 Long Spine
1966 Short Spine
1972 8.25m mintage
1985 & 1986 Mint Set Only
2001 Flamingo
2007 Double Head
2015 Missing 'SD'
2016 Decimal currency 4.798m mintage
2017 Banana's in Pyjamas
2019 Moon Landing
2019 New Effigy

Sticky beaks


Is there anything I'm missing?



Also I saw on Ebay something about small/large SD, small/big head. Can anyone provide more information please


Thanks in advance for your knowledge and information

I think that's about it. From all I have read the missing SD is not a real option. It sometimes gets faint because of a filled die, but I am not sure there is actually a real "missing" SD

Oh - and there is the 2016 changeover variety. I am a bit confused with this one. I have read that the changeover coin is rare - but I have 50 of them and only one platypus version.

Charl, as both of these are NCLT the chances of noodling either of these would be very slim.

Non circulating legal tender

In other words they are a mint issue or from a mint issue set. Not for general circulation

I've search $100 5 cents coins so far and still no 1972, 2016 decimal currency and 2018?

Is 2018 that hard to find?

It shouldn't be Charl ... according to the RAM 25.1 million were minted https://www.ramint.gov.au/five-cents

WOW! Thanks for the info Mr T

It's so hard to tell the difference between small/large head and high/low echidna

Is there any trick or tips to distinguish the difference easier?



Also regarding to small/tiny SD

Is it due to die fill or an actual variety?

Filled in SD does exist for the 5 (Not just a faint or weak strike) but it yet to be seen if they going to be as collectable as the 1972 5 cent or 2 cent SD die fill. There definitely not as collectable as the 2007 Double heads or double tails or the Alien 5c, 2016 changerover die clash.

The large/small head is definitely tough, even in the hand, but if you've got one it should be obvious (I hung onto all that I came across until I could spot a different one).
The different echidnas are easier - we know which years are which so you should be able to find examples of each and see the difference (some years the gap at the top is easier to spot, other years the gap at the bottom).
The normal and small SD is just die fill I think but the tiny SD coins have a higher echidna.

I just search on the internet and this looks interesting
Will add it to my hunt list!



Does anyone know about these 2 coins? I find it very common however not sure if worth keeping

- 2008 double outer ring front and back?

- Also 2006, there seems to be a line in between the milled rim


Sorry I can't post the picture at the moment but I will post soon when I have the chance

Not sure about the 2006 but the 2008 is due to the pre-rimmed coin blanks having a thicker than normal rim (apparently).

Sorry everyone for the late photo, been busy with work

Here are the photos regarding the coins I'm asking info about.

I find them very common however unsure the cause and if it's worth keeping.


2008 5 cents

Odd - never noticed the lines on the rim - I thought that was indicative of some sort of partial collar strike though I don't think it is in this case.

It's interestng that the RAM has updated the mintage figures for 2019 without an asterisk against each of the denominations, as it usually does.

The mintage figures for 2019 are only up to June 30th 2019 and, as I've written elsewhere a few times, the RAM continues minting the 2019 coins until they begin minting coins for 2020.

I could be wrong, but I still doubt if any 2020 CoA 50c or $1 MoR's will be appearing in circulation at all, just like the 2019 IRB and JC 50c which, luckily, have yet to be listed in security rolls.
