reporter "Could change everything": coin found off Australia may be from pre-1400 Africa

Evidence of trade between Africa and Australia from long ago. Reminds me of the possible trade between the Americas and ancient Egypt.

"...a small copper coin found by archaeologist Mike Hermes on a field trip to the Wessel Islands, off north-east Arnhem Land, last year. He believes it to be a coin from Kilwa, more than 10,000km away in what is now known as Tanzania, dating from before the 15th century. Its surface is eroded, obscuring identifying features, but Hermes is confident.

“We’ve weighed and measured it, and it’s pretty much a dead ringer for a Kilwa coin,” he says. “And if it is, well, that could change everything.”"

Pretty neat! It would be great to get a definitive conclusion on this.

That's very true of course.

If the Kilwa from Tanzania went to Australia in the High Middle Ages/Early Renaissance
there would have been a lot more knowledge of it
and records of it than some unreadable coin in the dirt.

Oh please. Not this story again.

CNN reported this story back in June 2013.

This guy found these 9 coins in 1944 in the Wessel Islands, Australia. They sat in a tin can until 1979 before sending them off to be studied.

The 9 coins that were found included 4 Dutch East India Company coins.

The Dutch found Australia (Nouveau Hollande) in 1644. Abel Tasman (Tasmania) also sailed around the North and West Coast of Australia and mapped it. Including extensive time in the area of the Wessel Islands which had been previously explored and mapped in 1636, and previously discovered in 1623.

In other words, there was extensive Dutch exploration, which would explain the Dutch East India Coins in the lot.

Occam's razor, a Dutch sailor dropped his coin purse, which included some old coins collected in Africa as souvenirs/good luck coins.

More lies and pro-abo propaganda trying to make out the aboriginals have been here for thousands of years and are traditional owners when they have only been in Australia for around 600 years.

The aboriginal propaganda is in overdrive as they try to take over more and more of the country and get more and more free sh*t at the taxpayers expense.

ALL these sudden *NEW* discoveries which have popped up in the last few years have been 100% sponsored by pro-aboriginal groups to produce results (with no REAL evidence, just made up assumptions) to push an agenda.

Like this latest bullshit - someone found an old unidentifiable bit of copper which could have come from literally anywhere, but noooooo it could ONLY be 100% proof of trade between aboriginals and Africans? WTF!? What would ancient Aboriginals possibly want coins for? they wouldn't.

This article is pure fiction and fantasy.

The "why would aboriginies want coins" is a good point. Pretty useless to them that long ago.

True, it was barter for centuries before coins.

Let's be sane and logical here for a minute and think about this;

These Africans? they had metal, they were seafaring, they had discovered the wheel, they were far more technologically advanced than the aboriginals.

Now tell me what could primitive ancient aboriginals, who were nomadic tribespeople with literally zero technology and who wandered around the bush carrying spears with their d*cks hanging out POSSIBLY have that an advanced seafaring people could POSSIBLY want to trade? Kangaroo balls? and even if they did have something, why would they want tiny metal copper discs which were completely useless to their way of life?
