Looking for something to do over New Year's?

We have been eagerly looking forward to our traditional change of coin design on New Year's Day.

Want to be amongst the last people in the world to strike a
2011 $1 Canberra mintmark coin? Then make sure to visit the Mint on Saturday 31 December 2011. If you stop by after 3 pm, you may be the lucky raffle winner to strike the very last coin of 2011.

Made a New Year's resolution to try new things and meet new people? Head down to the Mint on Sunday 1 January 2012 and experience the joys of coin collecting by becoming one of the first people in the world to strike a 2012 $1 Canberra mintmark coin and receive a special certificate stating exactly that. Make new friends amongst the crowd and see just how coin collecting can make your beginning to 2012 a little more interesting!
