Last Coin of the Year

Join us at the Mint on the last day of the year for your chance to secure the last coins produced for the year.

On December 31 at 3:45 pm, the Mint will hold a draw at the Mint to select the last ten customers to strike a coin in 2022. Each lucky winner will then enter the Mint to strike their coin and receive a certificate authenticating their last coin for 2022.

Due to health and safety concerns, the Mint requests no visitors queue at the Mint prior to 1.00 pm on New Year’s Eve.
