Welcome to my coin collection!

coins from overseasobsolete Australian coins

I have been passively collecting coins since I was quite young. I say passively because the coins have come my way (in my change or from other people) and not me seeking them out.

I sorted them today for the first time. I know I should have studied but this seemed more urgent!

I have coins and some notes from the following countries:

  • Australia (of course), old currency plus the decimal coins
  • New Zealand
  • Singapore
  • England
  • Fiji
  • Hong Kong
  • Holland
  • Canada
  • USA
  • Malaysia
  • New Guinea (my Dad was there in WWII)
  • France
  • Brunei
  • Indonesia
  • Polynesia
  • Philipines
  • United Arab Emerites
  • South Africa
  • some Euros from a trip to Ireland

With old Australia currency that existed until 1966, I have some pennies, half-pennies, sixpences, threepences. Some are still in last year’s Christmas pudding too! They are dated between 1912 and 1962.
