Australian coins dated 2018 back to 1999 are all of the Ian Rank Broadley effigy





My 2 circulation coins are a $2 coin (Standard design) and a 5 cent piece.

Coloured $2 coins include




The beautiful remembrance/armistice centenary coin and the colourful Eternal flame coin, one of my favourites of the coloured $2 series (In case you all have not noticed, I absolutely love these things, these $2 ring coins)





The other 4, $2 coloured coins include the Invictus games (Not coloured sorry) and 3 related directly to the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast, these are nice designs and an improvement on the 2016 Olympic coins, which looked crowded.

Coloured $2 coins started in 2012, but 2016 on to 2019 saw series begin with

2016 - Olympics - 5 ring coins + paralympics
2017 - Possum Magic - 3 coins + several $1 and 50 censt
2018 - Gold Coast Commonwealth games - 3 coins + Invictus
2019 - Mr Squiggle - 4 coins
2020 - Nothing, but blame covid.
2021 - Who knows, one coin announced, Indigenous Australian flag.

And of course Remembrance has been a constant theme 2012 - 2020 except 2013.

Thats me for 2018, now lets see your beauties!

STOP PRESS UPDATE: Just found out the cute little koala on the coin is called Borobi and he was the mascot of the games!

If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

Let's start with the 2018 ANZAC $1.




Now the Commonwealth Games $1



I think my favourite coin for 2018 is the eternal flame,
Lest We forget, $2 coin.

Great minds think alike, that eternal flame coin.

Meanwhile just won a good collection of circulated and commem $1, 20c and 50c along with a good group of 1c to 10c with many scarce dates. And realised the lot included a near complete run of pennies and halfpence (Average) but worth it for like $80 NZ (Everything - face is nearly $60 alone).

You are all going to see these coins in a few weeks.

Have you had any experiences with the famous Mr Squiggle?

I do remember watching it as a kid. The basic concept was that kids would send in a squiggle on paper. Mr Squiggle would then add to the squiggle to produce something else. It was all done by marionette puppets (except the female assistant of course). The puppeteer was also the shows originator. Yes, odd that it was not shown in NZ. Maybe because of posting the squiggles from NZ to Oz was too expensive for kids?

Thanks,

Now are we going to see some of your coins here, or do we have to get back a few decades, fair enough.

NumisRob love that big silver piece and you're the first to refer to the dollar as Mob of Roos in this thread.

Hopefully. Am currently setting up the rig for taking pics with my DSLR. Although I use the scanner the SLR just takes better pics.

Don't get too worried, my own coin photography skills are a real shocker at the best of times.

Ok, it looks like we have scrolled over 2017.
Let's see what I can find...

Ok, let's start with the 3 Possum Magic $2 coins.




How can we go past the XY GT-HO Phase III Falcon.

FAIR DINKUM!

Nice Ford Falcon coin.

I had the Possum Magic coins too - another Australian fad lost on me, here Possums are pests as they endanger our forests and habitats of all our timid birds. Our wildlife is so tame and archaic here (Mostly Jurassic era), No kangaroos, sharks, jimbles, crown of thorns, perenties or goannas here - just flightless birds scared of their own shadows and a shy pocket sized lizard called a tuatara.




The other 2017 $2 coloured coins included Remembrance and the Lest we forget, again both with very nice colour bands and not forgetting the classic Aboriginal elder coin.

New Zealand issued sweet fanny adams in coins for circulation (Things pick up in 2016 backwards).

Because of the lack of coins I have for 3 years ago - I will show you my Possum magic trio too, although mine are a bit worn and suffer from the same mediocre photography of my other
posts.




I did enjoy Mr Squiggle though, very funny as all the characters had ultra blokey Australian accents.

Nearly forgot - an image showing the date 2017, for the year of the moment.




2017 is probably my sparsest year back to at least the 20s at this stage, I don't even have a 5c or 10c coin from that year of either country.

2016 will be much better I swear!

These coins are NCLT and were a newspaper release in 2017.
As far as I am aware, these and the coins in 2016, are the only 25c coins.
