View Full Version : Subliminal messaging in Australia?

09-04-2010, 12:14 AM
I recieved some change at a cafe for a snack.
The most noticable to me was the 50c piece...
This was a XII COMMON WEALTH GAMES BRISBANE coin that was made in 1982.

Try and guess why I am making this post...


If you havent guessed yet...
In my opinion the symbol on the back has a striking resembelance to the Abstergo symbol in Assassins Creed...

Must join Abstergo [/robotic voice]

Haha, that is an awesome find! Great work http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Have any idea what it actually means/is there for?

EDIT: Mc - Have a bit of fun http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif He wasn't actually saying it was a conspiracy...

I know that, Try and use your imagination and believe something suspicous in the mint is goin on...
Having this abstergo coin has got my heart pumping even faster for brotherhood...

EA51 Ill look into it...

The reverse of the coin was designed by Stuart Devlin. The reverse design shows the logo of the 1982 Brisbane Commonwealth Games over a map of Australia surrounded by icons representing 12 of the sports conducted during the games.

the 1982 Commonwealth Games 50c was hoarded away in great numbers in the hope that they would someday be worth a fortune.

A coin from a mint set may fetch a couple of dollars more. A pristine proof 1982 50c could fetch about $20 while the silver coin from the 1989 Masterpieces in Silver set would get about the same. If you're lucky enough to find a circulated 1982 Commonwealth Games 50c in your change please buy yourself a very small chocolate bar with it because it's worth exactly 50c!

Aha! ACIII will be st in Australia with Aborigine Assassins and Koala bear Templars http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

Koala Bears?!?!?!

they're called Koalas!

you need Drop Bears but they'd have to be assassin's http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Here's some information on Drop Bears (http://uncyclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/Drop_Bear) and Australia (http://uncyclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/Australia#Things_that_will_kill_you)

P.S. Australia ISN'T part of North Korea

Note - I am not spamming, this is a history lesson and has to do with the subject since part of the subject says "in Australia..."

Who said it was????

Australia is closer to china...
I have chosen to treasure this coin and carry it everywear...
I think you can order them for $4 at the mint so mabey I can make a club and it will be an assassins creed token to prove your membership...
I might order 10...

good idea, I'll search thru my dad's stash of coins http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

some Americans think Australia is part of North America http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

Edit - I am Australian, I used to have
"Australia has Drop Bears and bogans!!! (oops maybe bogans aren't things to be proud of...)" in my signature but I got rid of it for the "Why Dinosaurs are extinct" pic

Edit Edit - OMG! I found one in my dad's stash! It's not as shiny as yours but it looks exactly the same! (camera doesn't work so I can't upload it)

Edit Edit Edit - Mind if I ask Shade whether this is just a coincidence or Ubisoft copied?

Haha awesome Mc!

And you stole what i was gonna say about the drop bears http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif.

Hopefully i can find one, but i ceebs looking now!

given the detail on the coin is still Australian Federal Property does that mean Ubisoft owes us some royalties??? maybe that could help pay off NSW massive debt.

That isnt my coin.
Mine has bronze markings on it and is not shiny...
TIP: Get some Pepsi Max: No Sugar, MAX Taste, and put the coin in it for a while...
The evil little bubbles will make it shiny in the hope of making a WOMD and take over the world before they go flat...

Ubisoft did not copy this coin...

I compared the markings on the coin to abstergos logo and there are several diferences...

1.The markings go clockwise on the coin depending on how you see it, and the abstergo logo gos counter-clockwise.

2. Abstergo has a total of 3 lines, the coin has 6.

3. Abstergo has shorter lines than the coin.

4. The coin's symbol is upsidedown.

5. The CommonWealth Games are an intinational gathering of atheletics and skill, Abstergo is a multi-million dollar company that is run by templars and are determined to get there grotty hands on all the pieces of eden using some bartender called Desmond Miles and a queir looking machine called the Animus wich has a thing that goes around Desmonds eyes when he lie down on it(which is sort of cool).
