Queensland and New South Wales will be Minting their way to mischief with a counter-stamp Rascals & Ratbags coin in July

Marking 150 years since the convict era of Rascals and Ratbags, the Royal Australian Mint is landing in a town near you. To celebrate their special contribution to Australia’s history, heritage and folklore, you’re invited to get up to a bit of mischief yourself, by counterstamping your very own commemorative Rascals & Ratbags $1 coin. Our mobile minting team will be touring around the country, stocked with a range of special products, coin swaps and just as many great stories to share.

Be sure to meet some of the great characters of our past, when the Rascals and Ratbags Roadshow comes your way.
