Approaching the 50th anniversary of decimal currency, the Royal Australian Mint (the Mint) is heading out of Canberra this month with the mobile press in tow to bring the minting experience to the people and share the decimal currency story.

On Saturday 17 October 2015 a group of men and women will depart Gilgandra in a 26 day re-enactment march to honour the Coo-ees. This team will walk in the footsteps of the 26 men who began marching from their hometown towards Sydney to enlist.
The original Coo-ee March was the first of many snowballing recruitment marches to enlist men to join the Australian Imperial Force in 1915. These men increased in number to 263 by the time they had covered the 320 miles, their youthful enthusiasm encouraging many men to answer the call from the Dardanelles along the way.
