Australia 1966 5c – London Mint (left), Canberra Mint (right)

The 1966 5c coin was minted at the Royal Australian Mint in Canberra (45,384,000 coins) and the London branch of the Royal Mint (30,000,000 coins). Distinguishing the two coins isn’t too hard and can be seen easily above. Look for the spines on the echidna’s front right shoulder, the spine circled in red above is long on the London minted coins and only about half the length on the Canberra minted coins.
