Sir Jack Brabham 50c.

I work for Repco and they developed the Repco/Brabham 5.0L
motor that was used in his race car. The car is now on display at Repco's head office in Melbourne.

Those are great, I heard they gave those coins away in the newspapers and you could buy the rest for a few bucks, there were those gold coloured 25 cent ones and silver coloured 20 cent pieces.

My commem supply is lacking for the millenium but picks up in the 1990s back to 1960s. I am glad you are showing all this stuff and stunning photos.

If it helps I won a 2007 set which has the surfing 20 cents and the 2006 with the reissued one off 1c and 2c coins. Lets hope they arrive in time.

yes, that was correct. The first one came free with the newspaper and I think the others were $3 each with a token from the newspaper. I was quite impressed with the quality of the 25c coins, but the 20c weren't very impressive.

I bought the proof 2007 Surf life saving set when it was released, but have since sold it and deleted the pics, so no pics of those from me when we get to 2007.

A couple more 2017 pics though...

2017 ANZAC, same as the 2018, but just the date changes.


Mabo 50c

2016 is one of my favourite years for both countries.

First New Zealand - The Reserve bank claims minting of 10c, 50c (Shown) and the $2. None of them have come through in change yet.




However the 10c and 50c coins of that year were all released in 2019 and earlier this year and are all UNC stunners like these 2 - I bought a roll of UNC 50 cent coins and kept 5 of them.

More importantly, it was also the year our banknotes were upgraded, with the $5 and $10 coming in 2015, but the top 3 in 2016.




As we are in 2016, I will show you only the Top 3 notes issued that year - the stunning $100, $50 and less stunning $20, Australia also embarked on an upgrade afterwards as it was Cambec Australia printed these.
DISCLAIMER: These notes have long since been spent, although I usually have $20s on my person and sometimes $50, the $100 is a real mission.

The notes were similar to the 1999 series but had bigger brighter numbers, larger transparent parts, watermarks and the addition of Te Reo Maori on the notes too.

Distribution is as slow as coins, as polymer wears slowly you can still get the old series now and especially with the $100 note, these are scarce except the common $20.

I know its a coin thread, but the notes spice it up and bring the balance back to New Zealand a bit too!

Australia issued some nice circulating commemoratives in 2016 too. My favourite is a set that celebrated 50 years of decimal currency. They reduced the size of the Queens effigy on the coins and show images of the predecimal coins.




The 5 cent shows the roos from the Bronze
10 cents the wheatstalks from the 3d
20 cents the coat of arms from the 6d
50 cents the rams head on the shilling
$1 has the arms from the florin
the $2 has the crown design from the crown issued in 1937/38.

All coins show the 1938 designs except the 6d/20c which was the coat of arms that appeared on the 1910 -1936 silver.

When we get to late January, we will see all these coins in the flesh. Love this set and with the exception of the $2 which I had, will thank Triggersmob again.

A close up of some of these coins.

2016 is the last year of large numbers of $2 coins, starting in 2015 it drops to 2 a year at most.





There were 5 coloured ring coins and they each were a colour of the Olympic rings (Green, Red, Blue, Black and Yellow), each coin showed various sports on the edge and the rings were small by standards of the other coins. They are okay, but not the best of the ring coins. Like most of the ring coins, there was a mintage of 2 million coins per type.




The other coins featured the Paralympics team, coloured and the plain $2 and the anniversary coin already shown before.

That is my 2016 - let's see yours!

Nice intro to 2016 Princetane. Love NZ banknotes. I did have a few of those, but sold them so I could buy more coins. :)

This is a Centenary of the RSL $1 and is NCLT.


Some newspaper coins. As stated previously, I'm not impressed with these coins...





I'm a big fan of the ram design on Aussie coins. so of course this is my favourite from the 50 years of deciaml series.

I'll have to examine all my other MOR coins for backpacks!

Australia also issued standard circulating coins in 2016 with the usual obverse and reverse designs:

Nice examples Numisrob.

I will definitely be doing more circulation pieces as we head back and investing in some photo shooting lessons. Yours and Triggers shots are perfect, mine are all hazy.

OK - moving into 2015. The 2015 Remembrance Day - In Flanders Fields. Apologies for the poor shot. Am still playing around with the DSLR setup and I haven't got access to Adobe PS at present.

1 ton gold

Considering PT specified the coins had to belong to the poster, would love to know which CC member has that one in their collection!

I can't go past this coin for 2015.
ANZAC coin released by New Zealand.


It didn't come with a CoA, but
they posted this out to me later.



Lest We Forget



And another one from the ANZAC series.

I thought we are going by "board time" or forum time, so it's still Dec 5 here (and apparently where the server is). Anyway, here's a coin from 2016 for Dec 5:

Australia -- 10 dollars, 2016:

Guys, we are running this on Forum time, not Australian and New Zealand time. Pepactonius you are 100% right!

We are in 2016 for a few hours, changeover is 6pm Kiwi daylight time and at 4pm Eastern Australia time, don't make do the rest as I know some Aussies don't have daylight savings.

Anyway welcome Pepactonius and David Graham!



The Gold kilo was a one off and not really a proper shot and was a demonstration coin only. The owner of the coin is the Perth Mint, although I believe her Majesty got one.

Also I posted that coin somewhere else as I can not find it here.

Finally - big thanks to the moderators for removing the unhelpful posts at the start by a certain member named after an alcoholic spirit.
