Visit the Mint on your next school excursion and see where all of Australia's circulating coins are made!
To mark 400 years since Dutch East India Company (VOC) Captain Dirk Hartog and the crew of the Eendracht landed on the West Australian coast, the Royal Australian Mint (the Mint) has released a special commemorative coin featuring the original text inscribed on the pewter plate that noted their arrival, as well as its translation to English.
Go on a journey from coin concept to final product at the Sydney Money Expo this month. Join two of the Mint’s reputable coin designers at Lower Sydney Town Hall, Sydney on Saturday 15 October – Sunday 16 October and enter The World of Coin Design.
Designers of some of your favourite Royal Australian Mint products, Aaron Baggio and Aleksandra Stokic, will be in attendance to answer your coin design questions and provide signatures.
