I'm trying to update my Australian dollars / 2 dollars collection for 2020 and 2021. How does anyone know what is released for circulation and what isn't? Are these Wiggles coins circulation or just NCLT? Can someone list all the circulation dollars and two dollars for 2020 and 2021 for me? And do you guys have a special name for the $2 coins, like Canada calls then twoonies?

Thanks!

$1 coins

2020
100 years of QANTAS
Donation dollar
supposedly there is a mob of roos but I've never found one in circulation

2021
A-Z (yes there are 26 of them)

$2 coins (We just call them two dollar coins)

2020
Aboriginal elder
Women's T20 (cricket)
75 years since end of WW2
Firefighters
Tokyo Olympics (6 coins including paralypics)

2021
Aboriginal elder
Indigenous Military Service
Ambulance
Wiggles (4 coins) I've only found "Captain Feathersword" so far

I think that's all of them. At the rate the RAM is churning them out these days it's hard to keep track (and interest)

Good luck finding them over where you are!

Hi jgfindring, I see that MachinMachinMan has alredy answered your query but, for future reference, you can always do a serach in the numista catalog which Brismike always keeps current. https://en.numista.com/catalogue/index.php?ct=coin

Just set the Edit filters to 'Standard circulation coin' and 'Circulating commemorative coin'.

Not really, no. Australians are normally good at spontaneously inventing and propagating slang, and had nicknames for all the old predecimal coins (eg. trey, zac, deener and "two bob" for the 3d, 6d, 1/- and 2/- respectively), but none of their decimal replacements have ever acquired a nickname; coin collectors call the regular-design $1 coin the "mob of roos", but nobody else calls them that. We just call them "one dollar coins" and "two dollar coins".

The non-commemorative design of our $2 coin features an Aboriginal elder, and a native grasstree whose common name is also a racist slur; I'd reckon any nickname assigned to the $2 coin would either end up being a racist slur, or would end up becoming one.

We'd certainly never call them "twoonies"; that's a peculiarly Canadian invention, derived as it is from "loonie" becoming the slang for the $1 coin as it depicts a loon bird.
Don't say "infinitely" when you mean "very"; otherwise, you'll have no word left when you want to talk about something really infinite. - C. S. Lewis
