1st image is a 1971 Australian 5 cent has a flaw that was there before it was struck also could be worn or a weakstrike coin, not sure whats with second coin.









Both coins are smooth when you handle them and no reading on the 1971 but the reeding is on the 1977 coin.

The 1971 is simply very worn, perhaps with some old acid-damage (a "coca-cola coin"), or perhaps it's spent time in a rock polisher. The missing reeding confirms this. If by "flaw" you're referring to the stripe across the coin at the queen's eye-level, I suspect it's a lamination defect, normally invisible but that's been accentuated by the acid/wear damage.

I'm not sure what you're seeing wrong with the 1977?

Both of these coins have similarities except one is darker the damage on the 1971 coin is definitely before striking this coin because it should have been indented across the top of the image it shows no evidence of it doing this.
If it is worn then some of those spikes wouldn't be that big

High points of coin would initially be worn before outer spikes so pretty much the 5 would be alot flatter than this and coke wouldn't do this too a coin maybe a chemical, acid in coke generally wears out over night.
