This week I bought the AFL $1 coin set from Australia Post with the folder and tube for $45.
A lovely set.

I only had time to noodle once this week, and that was spent on $200 of 50 cents. No 1985, but I did find an NCLT which I don't have!
Excellent!

And finally, a Firefighters $2 coin which I got for $7!
Very nice!

WEEEK 18
(29/05/23 - 04/06/23)

A very good week for noodling.

First I found THREE GACH 2019 coins!



I also found another NCLT Woolworths dollar:



Description: 2018 Commonwealth Games 4
Denomination: One Dollar
Year: 2018
Catalogue Value: $10

Next, I finally found a 2022 $1 MOR. Took me long enough.



And finally, a 2009 Fijian 50 cent and a 1989 Canadian dime which I found in the reject chute of the deposit machine!



Stats:
One dollar coins still to find: 26/41 (15)
NCLT coins found: 27

WEEK 19
(05/06/23 - 11/06/23)

Unfortunately there were no noodling finds this week.

All was not lost however as I found in the reject chute a New Zealand 20 cent from 2020, a 2006 1 Yuan coin from China and a Denver dime from 1973!

Once again no finds from circulation this week

WEEK 26
(26/06/23 - 02/07/23)

Well, six months in for The Hunt of 23 and you could say I'm making considerable progress.

So far, I've noodled most of the Great Aussie Coin Hunts 2 and 3 and I'm about halfway with GACH 1. Hopefully I will able to complete the Hunt by this year's end but coins like the Coronation $2 will need some effort to find.

Anyway, this week I got a New Zealand 20c from 1977, a 2019 Bushranger $1 (NCLT) and a Y for Yabby $1 from 2021.

(no photos as I am away from home)

I was also given a small bag of foreign coins, including my first coins from Turkey and Croatia:




Stats:
One dollar coins still to find: 27/41(14)
NCLT coins found: 28

WEEK 27
(03/07/23 - 09/07/23)

I was on holiday this week, but that didn't stop me from noodling some coins.

The CBA machine I went to closed down access to non-business cards in June, but thanks to the "$100 a day" I managed to score a $100 sealed bag of 10 cent coins, of which yielded my second 1985, and four New Zealand 10 cents:



And as a bonus, I managed to score one of the new $2 Matilda coins from Woolworths!

WEEK 28
(10/07/23 - 16/07/23)

It has been a bumper week for this hunt.

First my two trips to the coin shop yielded a lot of new adds. Try and guess which country coins I like the most




Next, I bought some GACH $1 coins which helped fill in some gaps.



And finally, the missing pieces to my 2016 $2 Olympic set!



Now begins what I call the quiet phase: I can only noodle once every week for the next several weeks, and it's not easy to find a lot of keepers in $100 of $2 coins (50 coins) so I'm going to stop providing weekly updates on my hunt. I will make an update if I find something that week.

Hopefully we can aim for 80% completion of the hunt by year's end!

my goal for this thread is to try and find every single coin issued for general circulation in Australia


I may have missed it, but what year spread are we covering here?
