    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Just wondering. Do your jokes get better after you've had a cup of coffee? :yack: ;)

    Unlike other modern circulating coinage of Australia, the 12 sided 50 cent piece is the only coin not having a milled edge. Your coin appears to be damaged outside of the mint. Did you know that coins are a themed curriculum in Australia? One of the student questions is: which Australian coin doesn't have a Milled Edge? Enjoy coin collecting and as Paddy said from DOWN UNDER.

    It looks like the edge of a one dollar coin punched into the front of the coin you can't see it on the back of the coin but Picture_20194715014701.jpg Picture_20193615013639.jpg
    Thats the whole point of the question theres milling on the edge and its rounded slightly like one a different coin its right into the coin like it's some sort of striking error it doesn't look like any 50 cent coin I've e
    The 1966 round 50 cent coin had a milled edge and in 2006 they released a round 50 cent coin i just thought it could possibly be an error because I have never seen it on another one
