Book a school excursion to the Mint
Visit the Mint on your next school excursion and see where all of Australia's circulating coins are made!
Exactly thirty years ago, Australia’s two dollar note was retired and the two dollar coin was born. Today (20 June 2018) the Royal Australian Mint (the Mint) celebrates the two dollar coin’s thirtieth birthday, looking back at designs and themes the coin has marked over three decades.
Marking 150 years since the convict era of Rascals and Ratbags, the Royal Australian Mint is landing in a town near you. To celebrate their special contribution to Australia’s history, heritage and folklore, you’re invited to get up to a bit of mischief yourself, by counterstamping your very own commemorative Rascals & Ratbags $1 coin. Our mobile minting team will be touring around the country, stocked with a range of special products, coin swaps and just as many great stories to share.
The Mint will be travelling to Dubbo, Wagga Wagga, Sydney, Parramatta and Wollongong during the second leg of the 2018 Road show. This year’s Roadshow showcases the 2018 Ratbags and Rascals: Australia’s Convict Era Collection.
Our team are excited to bring you the opportunity to trade for the latest products, get fresh change and stamp a special coin.
Dates and times to be advised.
Due to a change in policy, the Royal Australian Mint can no longer offer Circulating Coin Sachets for purchase through our online store or contact centre, effective from July 1, 2018. This change of policy has been made to ensure the Mint’s continued compliance with Australia’s Taxation regulations.
From July 1, sachets of circulating coins will only be available as a Coin Swap (cash only) at our Roadshow, Pop-Up and Coin Swap Events. We apologise for any inconvenience and encourage our collectors to take advantage of this limited window of availability.
