Mint Field Day this Saturday

Join the Royal Australian Mint in celebrating the release of its recent products from 10 am - 2 pm on Saturday 5 November at the first ever Mint Field Day! To mark 50 years of Triple Zero, the Mint has not only produced a commemorative collectible coin but you can also come along and explore the emergency service vehicles that respond to those calls - including the Snowy Hydro Southcare helicopter and a 44 metre ‘Bronto’ airlift, as well as a sausage sizzle from 10 am to 2 pm. If you’re one of the first 300 visitors you will also receive a free showbag packed with goodies!

Hyper-metallic and selectively gold plated 50 cent coins

To keep coin collecting interesting and exciting, the Mint have worked hard to create innovative and unique products.

The 2012 Six Coin Uncirculated Set will include the hyper-metallic printed 50 cent coins and retail at $32.50. The 2012 Six Coin Proof Set will feature a selectively gold plated 50 cent coin and retail at $130.00. These coins are not available to buy separately.

These products will go on sale on Wednesday 2 November.
