To welcome in the New Year, the Royal Australian Mint has unveiled the new theme for the 2021 Gallery Press and Mintmark Suite coins.
The highly anticipated theme – Centenary of the Royal Australian Air Force – will be featured on the coins pressed on the Mint’s public gallery press throughout the year.
Due to the changes made to our Last and First Coin events in response to COVID-19, the Mint’s gallery presses will be closed to the public from 1 to 3 Jan 2021 inclusive. 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.
We apologise for any convenience this may cause.
When planning your visit please keep in mind that the factory will not be in production from close of business Thursday 24 December 2020 and will reopen on Monday 4 January 2021.
