Pirate Guide to Collecting Australian Coins Paperback 2022 Edition - By Damian Walker


This book lists ALL coins currently in circulation, including the coloured $2 coins released by Woolworths as well as the dinosaur and alphabet coins from Australia Post. 

There are high quality images of every coin, so you can see exactly what to look for, plus mintages so you know which coins are rarest. 

It’s a guide to help you figure out:
- Which coins have been released into circulation over the years
- How rare each coin is
- What the coins look like, so you know what you’re looking for (and can easily spot errors)
- Which mini-sets you can complete
- Common errors and varieties that might be valuable.

Whether you're a new or experienced collector, this book will help you discover which coins to look for and what's left to collect.
