1994 fiji 5c piece
« on: July 07, 2019, 06:59:11 AM »
Anyone seen a 1994-dated Fijian 5c piece? Again, it's meant to exist but I've kept my eye on ebay pretty regularly and haven't seen one.

How do you know?

Assuming that Fiji follows the example of AUD, hasn't the 5 cents been an unpopular denomination in Australia for quite a while? I am not even sure it is still being made.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

The 5c was issued at least until 2014.
The 1994 issue is listed in Krause but may well be an error as nobody has one.

It is also listed in Schön World coin catalogue that I have.

It's reported in the literature.

I found an image online here

A lousy image so I cleaned it a little.
