I set a New Years goal of noodling a 1966 wavy. Got the first bag of 500 on Wednesday. 3x 1966 coins but no wavy. Some nice straight (non-Wavy) finds though.

David, another couple of nice finds, in particular, the medal coin and the Canberra coin.

Good finds.
Good luck with the wavy - I've been looking for 20+ years and have never seen one.

Nooooooooooooooooo.....
I hope you don't give motivation talks as a living Mr T. Hopefully sheer numbers of coins will make up for time.

@Tigersmob - Thanks Steve. Oddly, not the first 20c DSM coin I've pulled from circulation. Besides looking for the wavy I've also decided to build up a swap set of commemoratives for O/S trades.

Haha I don't drown myself in 20c pieces by any stretch - there are other members who have definitely found multiple wavy 20c pieces in the time I've been here (10 or so years I think) and I think sheer numbers will definitely help.
If it was one die then around 200,000 or so coins were struck and I've definitely found coins with similar mintages in change.

But it is definitely a tough coin to find.

Another bunch that was a bag of loose coins ($100) plus 5x rolls ($20) so 600 20c pieces noodled. 11x 1966 coins! A good number but no wavy. Was actually getting concerned that the first batch had no Kiwi coins. Can relax now. Changeover always nice. Still reckon the Will and Kate coin is one of the ugliest.

Total 20c coins noodled = 1100
Total no. of 1966 coins = 14

Number of wavy coins = 0

And another quick bag of loose coins.
Boy, a real Pacific influence going. Could almost buy a cup of chups with the Kiwi shrapnel and the French Polynesia 20F was a nice turn up.

Total 20c coins noodled = 1600
Total no. of 1966 coins = 18

Any punters or number crunchers willing to guess how many 1966 coins it'll take?

Please enlighten me, what does a wavy 1966 coin look like. I have about 10 x 1966 coins and hoping I can have one (We can show it in the wayback thread which is now at 1971, so 1966 is just 5 days away).

Gotta love all those Kiwi coins, its good to know there is life after death for them!
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

PT - It's all in the horizontal stroke of the 2 in the 20 as pictured. I don't have one myself and have never seen one in real life, hence my quest to noodle one.

I swear I have stockpiled 100+ 1966 20 cents - never looked at the closely and got reluctant putting them in the circulation just in case I don't know what I am looking at. I still don't think I have it.

Another 500 bag. Some more Keepers.

Good haul (12) of 1966 coins. So long as I'm finding them there's hope! Have also started marking them for fun to see if any come back to me!

Another 700 20c pieces. Some nice commemoratives. A nice 2004 little head although I'm beginning to think my noodling of 3 Big Heads was very lucky. Haven't seen one since and I'm concentrating on 20c pieces!!

Total 20c coins noodled = 2800
Total no. of 1966 coins = 43

Number of wavy coins = 0

Some nice finds there David, and I always love finding a kiwi - sometimes it's the only interesting coin I get.

58,200,000 1966 20c pieces struck, assume one wavy 2 die, assume it produced 200,000 coins, so on a good day, one in 291 1966 20c pieces. A fair few would have been withdrawn by now, and plenty of wavy 2s have been found as well, so I'd say high hundreds before you're due.

@Mr T - That's a lot of coin to noodle. It's a challenge I can't refuse. Although I was thwarted on Monday - stopped by at the bank to pick up a bag of 20s and the queue was almost out the door. Ended up grabbing 5 rolls from the machine at another branch so only 100 coins instead of 500! And it was pretty lack luster. There was a fairly nice looking 1966 coin that I was hoping would be a wavy but alas, no. The search continues...

There's nothing more satisfying than finding that coin! It took me 100+ 2000 millennium 50c pieces before finding an incused and that was a multi-year slog.
