Quick EMPTY the kids’ piggy banks and empty out your handbag - you just might be sitting on a fortune.
The other day while noodling (going through our change) we stumbled across the famous MULE Dollar.
What's a Mule dollar? It's a small number of the year 2000 $1 dollar coins that had been minted using the incorrect obverse die (heads side) and released into circulation by mistake and only discovered a year or two later.
Royal Australian Mint accidentally minted the coins using the smaller 10 cent obverse die (head side) by mistake. With just a 1.4 millimetre difference in diameter between the 10 cent and $1 coin you can clearly see a double rim circle going around the edges of the coin.
These errors are worth anywhere from $500 to $3000! If you’ve ever needed a reason to bust open the kids’ piggy banks, this is it!!!! You could be sitting on a winner!
Let us know if you have found any interesting coins in your change.
Junior MasterChef Australia
Though they may be small, they are mighty – underestimate these mini masters at your peril! Learning as they progress through the competition, what they lack in years, they make up for in passion, which they have brought in spades.
With favourite challenges like mystery boxes, immunity challenges and eliminations, there will also be exciting new elements in the mix, including the immunity gong, where two lucky cooks will win the chance to bang the gong and save themselves from elimination during the competition.
All about fun from the very beginning, this junior pack of cooks will have to collect their own honey from a beehive, make their way through a snowy MasterChef kitchen, taste a whole lot of ice cream and see if they recognise some familiar, but very old faces along the way.
They’ll meet some of the best chefs and cooks in the land, with challenges set by Curtis Stone, Darren Purchese and Kirsten Tibballs, doughnut doyen Morgan Hipworth and none other than MasterChef Australia Back To Win winner, Emelia Jackson.
From home-style favourite foods, a celebration of cultural cuisines and recreations of dazzling dishes, it will be hard to believe that cooks this small can cook with so much heart.
Along the way, they will be inspired, encouraged and guided by judges Jock, Melissa and Andy, putting up with a few dad jokes along the way too!
Expect surprises, laughter, amazing food and a whole lot of fun as this adventure sees one exceptional cook crowned Australia’s Junior MasterChef 2020, taking home a huge $25,000 in prize money.
Junior MasterChef Australia.
Premieres Sunday, 11 October At 7.30pm.

Chocolate CHRISTMAS WREATH Ripple Cake
Australian retailer The Reject Shop has launched a range of wheelchair-inclusive Halloween costumes for children, part of a mission to become more inclusive and allow children of all abilities to be a part of special occasions.
Partnering with national charity HeartKids, the range features two costumes that fit over a child’s wheelchair, and easily attach to it with velcro. With the puff of a magic wand, one of the costumes transforms the chair into a gorgeous princess carriage, while an ‘Ahoy Captain’ will see the other transform into a pirate ship. As every wheelchair is different, multiple velcro pieces are included with each costume to ensure that it fits.
“The Reject Shop has long been known as the place for affordable Halloween costumes, but we wanted to ensure that all children were able to join in the fun of Halloween celebrations,” says The Reject Shop’s Acting Chief Executive Officer, Dani Aquilina.
“Our wheelchair-inclusive range is the first step in ensuring that inclusion and diversity are inherent in our organisation. We’re excited to introduce the range to parents and children this October, as part of our broader strategy to help more families live on a budget.”
For the launch, The Reject Shop is collaborating with their charity partner, HeartKids, who is dedicated to working with children with congenital heart disease, who often find themselves in wheelchairs post-surgery and throughout their recovery stage.
“We’re thrilled to partner with The Reject Shop on such an important initiative,” says Rob Lutter, CEO of HeartKids. “These costumes will allow wheel-chair bound children a much-needed distraction from their time in hospital, and the chance to simply be kids again and enjoy Halloween celebrations.”
Along with The Reject Shop’s full range of kid’s costumes, the Halloween wheelchair range will be available in selected stores nationally, just in time for Halloween. Retailing for $49 each, it’s hoped that the range will make children in wheelchairs feel every bit a part of the Halloween celebrations.
