Say hello to the original kooka! I can’t believe the good condition for a coin minted in 1990! Makes me a bit suspicious but it passed the magnet test and ping test. Now I am two away from a complete date run.

That's quite some achievement  @ArcaneCollector . What dates are you looking for?

There are quite a few on this dealer's website, and he's ok.

I’m still after the 2000 and 2006 kookas. Which Weighton doesn’t have, ha ha. I’m in no rush.

@ArcaneCollector, Talk about longevity, she sure is a beauty. And congratulations on your collection. The Kooka is such a fun coin.

That's a shame, but they did have a good selection.

The house to yourself! A day of running around in your undies air-guitaring to Bon Jovi, eating pizza and ice-cream. Awesome!

Why Air guitar when I play.

LOL

And yes I do have actual Guitars and amps... Here is a video of my friends a bit drunk and a long time ago. Sadly one friend has passed away. But I still laugh... Early YouTube days man...

Rock on.

Just to show one more... These are the type of friends I keep.... Sadly the guy with the torch is the one who passed away... But I always have so many memories of him.

And Yes I was the idiot who suggested using a piece of hardwood.. not some soft pine . LOL

OMG I was dying that day

Those are the best type of friends! I’m glad you managed to capture some of those memories on film.
