Including a new find: 2017 possum magic "Invisible Hush"
Very nice!

So I learned today that you have your own possum species that is not related to our North American "opossum" (which we call possums).

hmmm they are both marsupials opossum and possum, but aren't closely related. Our possums like hanging out in trees and are terrifying at night due to the reflection at the back of their eyes, almost like dropbears.

Cool, they just don't look as attractive when worn. I think that one has a slight double rim near the bottom part (5 - 6 o'clock).

I agree too, Possum Magic was one of the um ah - wallpapery issues of coins along with Mr Squiggle, Wiggles and any other dodgy kiddies show (Expect Bluey or some other Aussie Kiddy thing next).
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

Ours like to run across roads at night and get squished.

So do ours. They also like to get fried on electric wires or get a zap and fall to their deaths. They are also incredibly loud when walking over tin roof tops. Not uncommon for noobs to think a person is on the roof. They're a protected species in Oz (unless you're a python) but a feral pest in NZ. I've heard they even make possum fur lingerie in NZ (those Kiwis..... ) Not sure why they were introduced to Kiwi land. I don't think it was accidental. In Brisbane we have the brush tail possum and the smaller (and cuter) ring tail possum. I think the Oz possums are better looking than the northern opossums.

Bummer. I hope those final twelve coins do not avoid capture for long.

Me thinks the purple coronation will elude capture for a long time!

Thanks jen.

A quick look on ebay shows sellers trying to flog hundreds of security rolls of these 2 coins, so it seems they have been officially released.

I guess I better add them to my list. Hopefully some will eventually find their way into general circulation.

From what I have read, it seems they were introduced here in 1837 to kick start a "Fur trade!!" I kid you not. Of course such a thing never took off. People just loved fur clothes back then not regarding the cruelty.

Rabbits were released here in the 1850s to also stimulate the cuddly animal fur trade (Seemed our flightless birds and tuataras were not cuddly). Like everything else introduced here in the 1800s except classic halfcrowns - it caused irreversible damage to our unique biota.

Day 56

10 rolls of $2 to noodle today.

The 2022 frontline workers coins have definitely arrived in circulation:


Judging by the amount of pale purple paint flakes floating around, I don't think these coins are going to hold much of their colour for long.



No other coins I was looking for.

Total number of two dollar coins noodled: 5075
Number of different coins found: 71
Number of coins still to find: 11
