Question for the Australians


Found a large coin, One Penny, 1921, Commonwealth of Australia.

Is that one still in use ?

Australia went metric to dollars and cents in 1966, so no not I use. A Zaurak posted, not particularly valueable with large number minted. If you can get hold of a 1930 penny then that would be different.

I keep it, goes into the collection of strange coins, from strange places, with strange people and strange talk.

Australia went to metric currency on 14 February 1966 (there was a jingle around to remind everyone). The 1 and 2 cent coins were removed from circulation in 1992 but are still legal currency if anyone still has some. That left the 5 cent coin as the smallest denomination which caused some confusion when buying small items because most things on a supermarket shelf are priced as say $4.99 so you end up paying $5. However, if something was priced as $4.97 then you pay $4.95 because the odd cents are rounded either up or down to the nearest 5 cent value.

Here we eliminated the 5 cent coin too. Used to be a lot of little signs at all the tills saying they used swedish rounding or whatever if paying cash or exact value if paying with eftpos. Don't remember seeing that in ages. Probably no need anymore since almost no one uses cash.
