Comments

This NCLT commemorative $1 coin produced by the RAM is part of the "Mr Squiggle & Friends" seven coin set made available for a price of $15 from Woolworths supermarkets from 12/2/2019. The set is also available from the RAM. The set also contains four circulating $2 and one other non-circulating $1 coin and a special non-circulating commemorative 1 cent coin. The theme for the set of seven coins is based on the classic Australian children's television series "Mr Squiggle" which is celebrating its 60 year anniversary in 2019. The 1 cent coin and two $1 coins are only available in the seven coin set.


The four $2 coins are also being released into circulation by being given as change at the checkouts at Woolworths supermarkets over a period of four weeks.
