Due to the changes made to our Last and First Coin events, the Mint’s gallery presses will be closed to the public on 1 January 2021. This change has been made to ensure the integrity of the Last and First Coin Ballots and for the health and safety of staff and visitors. The gallery presses will resume normal operation from January 2, 2022.
We thank you for your understanding and wish you luck in this year’s Last and First coin ballots, which will be drawn and winners notified next week.
