To celebrate Rio 2016, Woolworths and the Royal Australian Mint have launched a series of limited edition Australian Olympic and Paralympic $2 coins, and the only way to strike gold is by shopping at Woolies.
Due to an extremely limited mintage and popular demand, the stunning 2016 $5 Fine Silver Selectively Gold Plated Proof Coin celebrating the Rio 2016 Olympic Games has now sold out.
Although these coins are no longer available for purchase via the Mint’s retail channels, we do still have a number of proof coins which may appeal. Click here to see the full list.
No trip to the Royal Queensland Show (Ekka) would be complete without a show souvenir to take home. The Mint will be bringing the infamous pop-up shop to EKKA again, allowing customers to strike a B for Brisbane on the 2016 $1 Uncirculated Coin – Australia’s First Mints as the ideal show memento.
