It is definitely starting to annoy me how easy these coins are to find in change. The challenge is fleeting but anyway. I think it is a sign of the times here in Australia. Everything costs more especially petrol and it is the service stations and bottle shops which have so many in your change. Petrol and alcohol.One of the coins I got today I didn't have in my collection (yay) and I've never actually heard about it because it was a special issue from one of our leading supermarket chains over here in Australia .Here's the info on them.Top left.Royal Australian Mint announces official Australian Paralympic and Olympic Team Coin Programs The Royal Australian Mint (the Mint), Paralympics Australia and the Australian Olympic Committee share their ongoing support for Australia's athletes with the release of unique collectible coins, celebrating Australia's Olympic and Paralympic teams, as they get set for 2021.

Is this coin special

I was looking over my limited collection of US coins my uncle gave me after my dad died and I came across an odd looking penny. It's from 1943 but it's a different colour. It looks dark gray to a black colour. Anyone got any information on it. The condition of it has faired very well compared to the other pennies of its age.Thanks
