Picked this little chap up for a good price. I am old school, and think Perth Mint is the best. Smile

He's very cute, Quokky, and the Perth Mint is wonderful - but the RAM are also amazing. In fact, I think they have the edge.

We all like weird things, yet none of us will accept that... We will fight till the end of our 9 or crazy quokka life to defend that.

But what is great is variety. And as such it is really nice to have that option.

Why do I feel like singing "Kookaburra sits on the old gum tree" when I see this particular coin? It's so fun looking.

@admin, I enjoyed that video. The Girl Scouts still come door to door or set up at a grocery store. Will consider getting you a few boxes of Samoa cookies on their next drive.

I have not idea what the cost is these days, Yes I sound old.. and am old.

But I would love to get a medium sized box. Get 4 boxes of those Samaos and a couple mints too.

The rest meh... not bothered about LOL

If you ever see them please let me know. I will shoot you the money straight away.

Yep that is fine..
Depending on the size of the box you can get... would be my main question... but that is about £5.00 which is not bad.... And plus... OOOh I have not had one in over a DECADE.

I have York peppermint patties here ... and a whole big box on the way too.... LOL

I miss soo much silly things from home.

There are 32 Thin Mint cookies per box and 15 Samoa cookies per box. I just found that their drive ended in April. I'll go to the Scout website to see if there are any local drives left. Keep your Nutter Butter fingers crossed.

2 more kooks arrived to add to my collection. Also came with certificates. And at £30 each I’m really happy.

Being as ignorant as I am about kookaburra coins, I have to say that these older issues have a real charm to them.

I agree! I love the different poses. Same for the koalas. Not as fancy as a Germania Mint coin, but I like them.

I totally agree @ArcaneCollector Quokkas are mega cute! My nephew lives in Queensland, but sadly there are no quokkas in his area, so I'm not visiting Laughing

Correction to my original post - dingo pup, not cub!
