Coin from Oz in My Change Today

Today, apparently for a dime, or maybe a nickle, and I am not sure where I
got it, I got an Australian 5 coin in change.  When I looked at it at first
I noticed it looked like the Canadian 5 coin, but the reeded edge was what
made it distinctive and got the thorough look over.  First time I have ever
gotten an Australian coin in change.

Coin from Oz in My Change Today

I work near the Transit Center in Brisbane, Australia and tend to collect a
fair bit of overseas currency similar in size and shape to ours which I put
aside (except for the current New Zealand stuff).

So far I've picked up a Singaporean 20 cents (mistaken for our 10 c),
Singaporean 10 c (for our 5 c), Greek 10 Euro (for our 5c), Canadian 25c
(for our 10c), Cook Island 10c (for our 10c), Fijian 50c (for our 50c), USA
quarter (for our 10c), NZ shilling and Florin (for our 10c and 20c
respectively) and a Papua New Guinea 20t (for our 20c).

Not worth much but interesting all the same.

Steve.
