    Don't know, if they do that then they should redesign all of the notes to remain consistent.

    My relative's design is still on the $20, hopefully it stays that way.

    Anyone have a $5 coin they trailed briefly back in the late 80's?

    Me too. Can see a more Aboriginal art influence on it.
    And I heard they are going to update the whole lot.

    It does look like bacteria floating from QEII's lap...
    Perhaps the artist is a republican

    I got the gold coin set plus the Paralympic . That's 9 gold coins
    valued at about 7K now.

    Had I just bought gold bullion at the time it would be worth about 20K today lol. Gold coins suck.

    how much did you pay for them?

    I have all or just about all of the cheaper ones, I think they were $5.95 each,
    20 years later, I think theyre worth about $4

    investment fail

    The 8 coin set cost about $3300 The Paralympic set was about $700

    So that's about $4K all up.

    Buy bullion I think or rare coins maybe.
