Striking Art: Lasting Impressions

Tuesday 19 January - Sunday 14 February

Over the past 20 years Wojciech Pietranik has created a collection of striking art leaving a lasting impression in the history of coin design in Australia.

This exhibition celebrates Wojciech and the art of coin and medal design and will showcase a number of coins, medals and sculptures from his collection.

This is a rare and exciting opportunity to view Wojciech's collection on display for the very first time. Exclusive only to the Royal Australian Mint.

Want to be the last person in the world to press a 2009 coin or the first person in the world to press a 2010 coin at the Royal Australian Mint?

 

If you answered yes to either of the questions above, then make sure you get down to the Mint on Thursday 31 December 2009 and Friday 1 January 2010.

Following tradition, the Mint will unveil its new mintmark coin design to the public on 1 January 2010. However, before we change the dies over, we are offering one lucky winner the rare opportunity of being the last person in the world to use the visitor press for 2009! Raffle tickets will be given out to visitors from 3.00pm on Thursday 31 December and the lucky winner will be drawn at 4.00pm to press the final coin.

It is with great sadness that the Royal Australian Mint announces the passing of its current Chief Executive Officer, Ms Janine Murphy.

Some of you may have been aware that Janine had been suffering from a long term illness.

Janine was a wonderful colleague and friend to all of those at the Mint and its loyal customers. She will be dearly missed.
