1989 Australian 10 Cents

Do you have an Australian coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question

It is the size of a quarter.
It is the weight of a quarter.
But this is not a U.S. quarter that I recently found in my change.

At this point with all the state, territory, bicentennial, and eagle quarters circulating it is not  to clear how a quarter should look like. Although I'm thinking the Queen and a giant 10 would give most people a clue.

Still this Australian dime passed quite easily as quarter.


Here are the stats for this coin...
Type / Country: 10 Cents / Australia
Year: 1989 
Mintage: 45,000,000
Metal: Copper-nickel
Value: $0.25 in XF (this one is less than XF)

These are rare I think all the real ones have been found.
That said to be 100% it would have to get graded by a service like PCGS or find a local coin club that can help you for free.
A coin grading company would charge a lot even if fake.

have you ever found a steel penny in your change? what's your rarest and most strange find?

Any counterfeits? I hear a lot of New-Yorkers, retired tourists coming to the berkshires talking about counterfeit bills they've been getting. Don't know if it's just someone preying on them, but i'd like to see one. I think your supposed to call the Secret service about those, that would be a trip!

Yes.

what's your rarest and most strange find?
A 15% off-center Georgia quarter.

Never most NY store clerks can spot a fake in less than a second so I don't think I will ever find one.
Outside NYC I notice clerks aren't that attentive.
I would keep it seeing how the SS would not give me full value.

I just found this same australian coin with the "10" on the reverse in my change this week. Sure enough it is almost the exact same size as the US quarter. I wonder if my local bank would exchange this for me... :-)

If there nice they might but they don't have to. Not even an exchange place would do anything under $100.

got one of these in my change from wal mart in west sacramento ca. thought it was kind of cool.

I once got a half stamped penny in change from a store. I was down at the time and took it to a coin dealer in Reno NV and he gave me $5. I recently watched a documentary saying it is so rare that these partially stamped coins are worth hundreds of thousands sometimes.

--They have great a geat design as do most Australian coins.

--Yes and no.
A U.S. cent that is 50% Off-Center averages about $10.00 if the date is complete and at least extra-fine.
Some dates are scarce and in high grade of MS-66 (Mint State) or higher can be worth hundreds but not thousands.

Again a lot depends on date, % off center, and condition.
If circulated, date cut-off, and not graded it is lucky to get $5.00.

My 1989 Australian 10c coin has not been milled around the edge, does this make it more valuable ?

Man said...

989 Australian 10c coin has not been milled around the edge

It can easily be altered or damaged. So if they coin is normal in every other way then it is not a true error.
