What's Your Favourite Aussie Coin?
October 27, 2016, 11:41:19 PM
I have always been partial to any of the designs with the Ram's head.

So this would be my favourite...

What! You don't have an Aussie coin.
Let me know and we will soon fix that.

Did you know that when the KOTCT started it was a prerequisite
that you had to own an Aussie coin. True.

My favourite Aussie Coins are Crowns. I have one from 1937 too but not as good quality as Mr. Barry  :)

:D  Our castle is the best coin place on the world :D

Another good choice.
I have the 1967 too, but I can't afford the 1938.

I enjoyed the little bit of history about the clubs prerequisite of having to own an Aussie coin. I hope this one qualifies, it's the only one I own but it's one of my all time favorite, sorry favourite coin designs. It was nice to have a reason to go dig it out of the safe. Sorry the pics aren't great.

Nevol's 600 birdies must be quite a sight to see. Is that many birdies called a herd ? After looking at Trout's 1927 Parliament House, I thought one would make a nice addition to my growing collection of 'Aussies', so here is my first florin...

The 1927 Florin is one of my favourites. This example I got a while back, and just fell in love with the toning. The PCGS True View really brings out the details :)

It was our first commemorative Florin here down under (perhaps first commemorative coin in fact....but vodka has addled my memory right now ha ha), with appx. 2 million minted.

I also love my 2012 Gold "Mini Money" coin set.

It features 8 proof coins, of 11.15mm (0.43 inches) diameter, weighing 0.5 grams each (truly mini money) of 99.99 pure gold.

Each coin features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of HM QEII on the obverse, and the design of each of our 8 circulating denominations since decimalisation in 1966 on the reverse (1 cent to $2). 

Hard to get a good picture sorry :)
