Hold onto your horses Tasmania, the Bushrangers are headed your way in May!

This year the Royal Australian Mint’s Roadshow, Bushrangers – The Bold, the Bad and the Ugly commemorates some of Australia’s most notorious bushrangers. As Australia’s colonies developed, bushrangers roamed the countryside: some were anti-establishment heroes to the common people, whilst some were forced into a life of crime. Although feared, Australia’s wild colonial Bushrangers also sparked a legacy of art and folklore, that continues to shape our nation’s psyche, and helped to create the myth of the Australian ‘larrikin’. The Royal Australian Mint recognises the significance of the lasting impact that the bushranging era has had on Australia, including its role in shaping Australian art, literature, music and culture.
