SPRING into the Mint during Floriade 2017!

During Floriade we are introducing a new way to experience our public galleries. In the place of public tours, from 16 September to 15 October 2017 between 10.00am and 4.00pm, our lovely guides will be stationed at key areas ready and waiting to tell you all the fantastic stories of coins in Australia and how we mint approximately 250 million coins each year.

You can also design and colour-in your own coin, create a possum mask, and check out our robots! If you’re lucky, one of them just might dance for you.
