I was just going through my Aussie 10 cent pieces, putting them into 2 x 2's and I noticed my 1985 coin has no reeding around it. Is this normal for this year. The rest of the coin looks fairly unworn. Can anyone enlighten me. Thanks.

The Aussie 10 should always have reeding. Likely explanations are:
- it had normal reeding but somehow wore off without wearing the rest of the design. Being used eg. to test vending machines might do that.
- it could be a mint error, though in that case it probably shouldn't have a rim at all; it should be "broadstruck". I can't see any way a "plain edge" 10 could be made without making a special plain collar die just for that purpose.
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

I just weighed the coin on some scales I use to use for weighing gunpowder. I compared it to a brand new coin and they both weight the same at 86.4 grains = 5.6 grams.
