On my first day of work at UNSW, I went into the post office on campus to mail a letter from my son to his classmates back in America. I saw a little tube for sale with "The Great Assie Coin Hunt" written on it. I thought it would be a fun way to explore Australian culture, so I bought a set for each of the kids. When I got home that evening, we poured through each coin, googling for more than half of the coins about things we'd never heard of, and writing a shopping list of things we wanted to try the next time we went to the store.
