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!
