In what way is that 1999 Kiwi 5 cent an upset coin. Looks fairly typical to me.

When saying an 'upset' coin I think that MachinMachinMan is referring to a rotated die.

Yes, that is what I mean.



Shouldn't the coin be orientated so that the tide-line is level on the reverse and the point of the queen's crown is at 12 o'clock on the obverse?

Only finds of interest were these foreign "imposters"
Fun finds though.

Day 26

Searched through a $100 bag of 5c coins. That's 2000 coins so surely there would be a 1972 amongst them...

There were only 163 Machin effigy coins (1966-1984) and none had 1972 on them.

Only Australian finds of interest were a change-over and 3 2019 JCs.


Luckily some foreign finds kept things relatively interesting



Among a dozen kiwi 5c coins was a very nice 1985


You don't often see George VI in circulation around here


The search continues...

Total number of 5 cent coins noodled: 4400
Number of different coins found: 57
Number of coins still to find: 1

:The foreign coins are a nice surprise to noodle for your eyes now and then. Surely you will get the 72 in the next batch.

Yes it's all a matter of luck. It seems the more you want to find a coin the longer it takes.

When you find the first one the second will show up right after that, good luck.

Day 38

Noodled $50 worth of 5 cent coins and found absolutely nothing of interest.

No 1972, no change-over, no 2019 JC

Usual half a dozen kiwi 5c and none of them were even a 1972.

Total number of 5 cent coins noodled: 5400
Number of different coins found: 57
Number of coins still to find: 1

That 1972 is elusive alright, I have 3 spares - if you honestly can't get one - I will send you one.

The scarce NZ 5 cent is 1973, with just 1 million minted.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

Day 41

309 coins into today's 5c noodling session and I found this extremely grubby 1972



Hey, it's a 1972 and therefore my mission to noodle a complete set of Australian circulation 5 cent coins is completed.

Total number of 5 cent coins noodled: 5709
Number of different coins found: 58
Number of coins still to find: 0
