Whats going on here then?

Another Day Another Dollar is a project about doing and completing something. It is inspired by 365 Make Something
and follows the tradition of Skull-a-day. Over the next 365 days I plan on creating images using Aussie Dollar coins, each day
adding one extra dollar until I have $365.00 with which to splurge or donate. Wish me luck

I've decided any money pooled will go to the Victorian Animal Aid Trust in Coldstream Victoria. Love their work
and one of my babies came from them http://www.animalaid.com.au/ (added 03/11/10)

Today (01/05/2011) marks the six month point of this 365 day project and I may just vary the way I photograph the coins for a period. I will still be adding a new coin to the collection each day and still be posting a daily image, but I may vary the amount of coin I photograph on any given day.
Some days I come up with an idea that requires more or less coins than the daily total indicates and so I haven't been using that idea, but from now on you'll get what takes my fancy. Rest assured I will still do regular postings with all the coins for a given days total. Heres to the next six months. Oscar.

Sunday the 30th of October marks 365 days and the finish of this blog. It will be time to hand over a small amount of money to a cause that needs so much more and I hope anyone finding this site will help in anyway they can. I have had so much fun doing this blog and at the same time so much stress in coming up with ideas, For the last few days I have left I will revisit some of my earlier pictures for an update or maybe need a little nudge in the right direction.

To all those who came back time and time again I thank you, to Google for removing the Ad links and the small amount of money raised; I blow you a raspberry and think you were mean and unapproachable.

Love to you all Oscar the Fox.

264, Atoll

Somewhere off the coast of Oz is a beautiful coral island. With its golden
beaches and green blue waters it's the place to be seen and splash some cash.

261, Pacacoin man

Tonite we retro. 
I don't think Pacacoin man has a ghost of a chance of eating all my coins.

260, iHades

Deep in digital hell and watched over by banking demons coins are forged and waiting to burn holes in unsuspecting pockets.

259, Very Welcome

Some of my fav doggy friends (with help of their people) have donated some coins to the project. I am very grateful and hope Spike and Bonny get lots of tummy rubs as a reward.

257, Lost Coin

I've found out why its hard to find many of the coins I don't have in my collection yet.
The reserve mint wants to sell them to me at $15.00 each. Here are a few I've discovered for sale.
You never know, I may bite the bullet and snatch a few (but they mightn't make to the jar for keeps...)

250, Qtr-C


One by one we pick off Pertinent numbers, I was happy when I passed the first 30 days. even happier when 100 days was reached. The three month and six month milestone were next to fall and now its day 250.

In just over 115 days I'll be handing over a jar containing $365.00 and it will be a celebration and probably a moment of sadness that I wont be stretching my brain on a daily basis. Having said that, watch this space.

249, and Personel

248, The complete package

OK you already know I'm a bit weird, so I like packaging. I'm the advertisers dream.

There's the form, the color and size, the function. And its because of all that I always have lots of crap laying around, just waiting to be re-purposed as a prop or as a case or covering or part of a larger artwork.

Its not junk its a resource, a never ending supply of... of... my precious.

247, On the Inside

Have you ever wondered what the coins see?
This is the view from the inside, The picture they didn't want you to see....

246, Back together again.

Aren't they lovely.

245, Warning

I need to bring to your attention, a most insidious product I found today. (And I only purchased several for research purposes) Wine in a Can. It is a joint NZ and Oz co-production and should be avoided at all cost. The French have still not forgiven us for the wine cask and the screw top wine bottle, so I know this will cause a major diplomatic situation.

244, Differently Identical.

Even after 244 days of finding, swapping, buying and stealing one dollar coins; I have only managed to find 17 of the 65 different faces that have been released by the Australian mint. But for you my peeps, I'll get on searching.
