If you would like a remarkable souvenir of your Enlighten experience, visit the mobile Mint at Australian Parliament House - and make your very own change! The Mint is offering you the chance to counterstamp your own uncirculated 50th anniversary of decimal currency dollar coin, with a special 'C' for Canberra. As a special treat to celebrate this anniversary, this counterstamp will be struck onto the obverse side of a coin, for the first time in Mint history!
In 1966 Australians made change... in more ways than one. Fifty years on the Royal Australian Mint (the Mint) wants to celebrate decimal currency's golden anniversary with you! On Saturday 13 February 2016 the Mint will open its doors, inviting all members of the public to learn about the journey of coins in a rare opportunity to explore the factory floor and much more.
With some fans queuing overnight, coin collectors and Canberra public today joined the iconic Royal Australian Mint (the Mint) New Year's celebrations seeing one lucky collector strike the first coin worldwide in 2016.
Following overwhelming demand, the stunning 2016 $5 Coloured Fine Silver Proof Domed Coin - Northern Sky: Cassiopeia has now sold out. Proving popular with collectors, this coin featured a stunning design and superb craftsmanship while paying tribute to an awe-inspiring northern sky constellation.
The Royal Australian Mint's highly-anticipated traditions will continue this year, welcoming in the New Year by giving lucky collectors the chance to strike the last coin of 2015 and the first of 2016.
We are excited to announce that the Royal Australian Mint Fine Jewellery Collection microsite is now live! Inspired by over 50 years of the Mint's much-loved coin creations, the wide range of on-trend necklaces, rings, cufflinks and much more can now be viewed in detail online.
Celebrating a new arrival for 2016, birthday or special treat is as easy as ABC with the newly-released 2016 Alphabet Collection. From individual coins to entire sets, this collection is sure to have something for everyone.
