Museum Victoria Comment
Hi Tina, as we state below, Museum Victoria doesn't provide values or worth of items. But we can tell you that these coins are not worth anything more than their face value, unless they are proof or uncirculated coins. In fact, these coins are still legal tender, even though they are not produced or in use any more - they were never demonetised.
