The CWA have been collecting any overseas coins and or notes for a number of years. The tin for these can always be found on the front desk in the Guardian Office. These coins are collected state wide and taken to the CWA - AGM in early May and exchanged for Australian dollars. A very worthwhile way of getting rid of your loose shrapnel that you have lying about in your home. So please have a good look and drop them into the Guardian Office before April 24th (day before Anzac Day).
