Just for a bit of fun,i thought we should find out our oldest Forum coin find.

But with a difference, I'll start of with a 2010 coin then someone else posts a 2009 coin find.
Next member posts a 2008 find and so on.Until we reach our oldest find without missing a consecutive date.

RULES : Coins must be found in Australia.
Only one post per member per day,or else we will delete them.

So here we go with a 2010 $2 coin.

Meggie ...

It's not all about photo's,it's about the numerical year coin countdown.

So you could show foreign coins that you have found for example.
Be imaginative.
