One Dollar Alphabet series
« on: June 28, 2019, 08:11:46 PM »
According to this currency determination
Currency (Royal Australian Mint) Determination (No. 3) 2019
the Royal Australian Mint is preparing an ''Alphabet Series'' of One Dollar coins.
I truly hope it will be NCLT/NIFC. Yet, if they chose to release these coins in actual circulation it will hopefully be done in meaningful numbers -- and not like the 10p coins of the Royal Mint in the UK.

I see they list 29 different types - this is getting a bit too much.   :o

Australia has done this before with a group of colorized dollars in both aluminum-bronze and silver.  I just checked my new edition Renniks Australian Coin and Banknote Values, 29th edition (pages 94-95) and found the sets of 2015-2017 in both metal compositions.  It looks like a continuation of the series and/or there is change in Queen Elizabeth II's portrait.

Have the Aussies started speaking Swedish? We have 29 letters in our alphabet but I thought English had 26.  ;D

It seems we have a funny way of listing things as it reads:

1
Shape S1 Circular

2
Edge E3 Interrupted milling

3
Obverse O1 A design consisting of an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II and the following: etc.....

then it goes on to list the 26 letters of the alphabet.  ::)

Probably mint set only. Seemed like a strange choice by the Royal Mint to circulate theirs.
