coincollectorcoincollector Registered User regular
Hello everyone,

I'm searching for a handful of prior year pax coins (i was late to the party) .

I'm assuming a straight up buy thread isn't allowed here but i guess I'm seeking advice / tips on how i may be able to get a hold of these coins ?

Thanks for reading

    What years do you need? We changed our minds about collecting them.

    Depending on the year, I would get in contact with Kiddercorp. I believe they keep left over challenge coins that were not sold

    Which coin are you missing? Before Kiddercorp, we used Phoenix Challenge Coins

    The very first one eh? I assume Pheoenix made them, but not sure. I couldn't find any mention of them online...

    You could ask strebalicious or papaprinny, but I don't know if they are active on the forums any more...

    Will try that! If you also happen to run across someone who may have it , would appreciate a mention!

    Thanks for the tip

    The Wiki entry for the PAX Aus coins is currently incomplete. I may as well document the PAX Aus coins for future reference. Design of all coins has the text Nullus Anxietas, Welcome Home / PAX Aus <year>, Melbourne, Vic <month> <days>. One side has been dedicated to Melbourne landmarks and icon while the other has been gaming or computer related.

    2013 no coins for the first PAX Aus at the Royal Melbourne Showgrounds
    2014 no coins for first year of PAX Aus at Jeff's Shed (Melbourne Entertainment and Convention Centre)
    2015 Plain (plain bright coins for general distribution), no colour coins produced, Limited edition Plain (believe only 6 coins released by Kiddercorp) - Melbourne's Jeff's Shed Tram/International Cricket "Out for a Duck"
    2016 Plain, first year for Colour coins - Melbourne's Exhibition Building/Drop Bear
    2017 Plain, Colour - Melbourne's St Paul's Cathedral/Coat of Arms
    2017 Colour - Limited edition Enforcers Coin - PAX Aus 5 year milestone/E Shield "Cogito Ergo Ludo"
    2018 Plain, Colour - Melbourne's Lunar Park/Mario
    2019 Plain, Colour - Melbourne's Skipping Girl/Microbee computers
