Oh, how wonderful!

Only one problem....its still only worth $2.

Now, if they came out with a $5 coin then I'd truly get excited.....

How great will detecting be when they issue $5 coins instead off notes, we will be able to make good money then. Hopefully they will make them small enough that they are easy to drop and lose

Good on you Ant....

but seriously, how sweet would life be if they were lost as commonly as $2 coins?

Probably never going to happen even if they were to be introduced, given our push towards a cashless society.
All my retirement dreams going up in smoke....

I have a few $5 coins, from memory they are fairly big, maybe round 50c size?

Thanks Ant I was not aware of them. I collect these $2 coins for the grand kids and even if they are only worth $2 in the future at this rate the kids will be richer than me. Got 6, five from the young check out chick and only one from the grumpy my generation check out granny.

  • I think that if they go into general use the colour will soon go from them .. After getting some in change today they don't ring my bell as being anything great in design or features.. But that's only my opinion... Lex
