Circulating coins travel along a conveyor system, where they are counted and placed into small bags or sachets. These small bags are weighed to ensure they contain the correct number of coins, and are then counted into larger bags. The large bags are weighed to ensure that they contain the correct number of small bags.
These large bags are packed into boxes. When full, these boxes are sealed and circulating coins are stored in the Mint’s vaults until delivery trucks are ready to securely collect them and deliver them to banks.
Uncirculated and proof coins are individually packaged and delivered to the Royal Australian Mint’s onsite shop, eShop or distributed to dealers who have commercial arrangements with the Mint.
