20 Cent Coin 1988
A coin expert has urged people to pay more attention to their spare change before giving it away, revealing some rare 5c, 20c and $1 coins could fetch you a whopping $20,000.
A $1 coin recently was put up for auction at $4000, with similar coins – defined by small minting mistakes and known as a ‘mule’ – among the most sought after by collectors around the world.
“We don’t know how many are (in circulation), but they originally started showing up in Perth,” coin expert David Jobson told The Morning Show today.
“Somebody’s missed it at The Mint, and people have gotten lucky.”

Mr Jobson said the value of the coin depends on its quality – a really high quality coin could go for $4000 or $5000, while one that’s poor quality is only worth about $300 or $400.
Among his personal collection is a five-cent coin where both sides are heads – what he called a “striking error”.
“In 2007, they accidentally produced a five-cent piece that had the Queen’s head on both sides. So it’s quite a striking error, and they’re a lot easier to notice in your change,” he explained.
“Value-wise, it starts off at about $1000, depending on the quality – and it goes up to about $4000 for really nice ones.”
He also recently sold a 20-cent coin with scalloped edges – caused by a printing mistake with a Hong Kong coin – valued at a staggering $20,000.
“In 1981, The Royal Mint in London produced our 20-cent pieces,” Mr Jobson said.
“They also produced the Hong Kong $2 coins. So somebody accidentally mixed the $2 scalloped-edge coin with our 20-cent dies, and they produced that coin.
“It’s very valuable. There are less than 10 that are known to exist, and they value anywhere between $15,000 and $20,000.”

Mr Jobson advised people hang onto any strange-looking loose change – which can be worth a little bit of money if you have multiple versions of the same coin.
“They’re definitely worth hanging onto. If you find something rare, you need to speak to an expert and show them,” he said.
“Take a really good photo, send it off to your local coin dealer and they should be able to tell you what it is.”
