The Royal Australian Mint would like to wish everyone a happy and safe holiday period. We would like to ensure that anyone visiting the Mint during this time is aware of the changes to free public tour times and opening hours. Please keep in mind that the factory will not be in production from Christmas Eve and will reopen on Wednesday 4 January 2017.
Join the Mint this December at the 2016 Summer Sizzler Sale! Purchase some treasured gifts at reduced prices, unearthed from the Mint's vault especially for the occasion. The event won’t only feature exclusive sales but you will also have the opportunity to meet one of our coin designers and have an up-close look at our latest releases.

The alloy of the 50c, 20c, 10c and 5c coins listed in the 2015-16 Annual Report is incorrect. It should state Cupro Nickel. A correction note will be published in the Mint's 2016-17 Annual Report next year.
