​Solid work! Look at all that uniformity in data... mmmmmmmm makes my heart and OCD's all warm and fuzzy.
The difference is the RAM issue a completely different set each year with new designs whereas tgg by r royal mint just changed the date on the 10p sets
It is more an Australia Post thing than a RAM thing .. The RAM mints them but it is Aussie Post that does all the marketing/promotion etc.

It definitely gets the kids collecting coins though and you would be surprised at how many get into circulation. You can just walk into a Post Office, buy a 50 cent stamp with a $5 note and ask for change in $1 coins and you will get these Alphabet coins. Then people spend them and they show up all over the place.

When they first came out in 2019 they were a little cagy at releasing them, only certain letters each week, but now it is a free for all.

Finding non-circulating coins in circulation is one of the great things about this hobby!

​Out of the five sets I bought I was very surprised to find the very first two I opened had coloured cruX coins. So 2 out of 5 aint bad.
