Australian Signals Directorate releases coin with secret code to mark cyber-spy agency's 75th anniversary
"We thought this was a really fun way to engage people in code-breaking with the hope that, if they make it through all four levels of coding on the coin, maybe they'll apply for a job at the Australian Signals Directorate."

if anyone is interested the article is linked below the pictures..

Hello there @ilank14 , good to see you. That looks like the sort of puzzle I'll leave to someone with a brain.

Just when I am getting somewhere.... there is piggen Morse code as well which I will have to look up. 

And I doubt I have anything really. so can anyone cypher the front of the coins Morse code?

PS look at the back and pay attention to the numbers and also the tiny patterns on the 6'oclock position.

I have decoded it. It says “Put another shrimp on the barbie Sheila”.
