Temporarily closed to the public

The Mint Gallery and Coin Shop located at Deakin, Canberra are temporarily closed to visitors until Spring 2024

From 29 January 2024, the Royal Australian Mint in Deakin, will be closed as we freshen up for our 60th birthday. 
We look forward to welcoming you back in Spring 2024 with new galleries, a new shop and improved amenities. 

But never fear, we will be relocating our Coin Shop and special Exhibition to Canberra Museum & Gallery (CMAG),
right in the heart of Canberra, with easy (paid) parking in the Canberra Theatre complex.

April School Holiday Programs
Kids Workshop: Mintventures - People, Place, Portraits

Stories about where we are from and what’s important can be told in many different ways.

In this special kids’ program, you’ll discover the different ways people connect to place in the Canberra/Kamberri, Place & People exhibition.
Explore how these stories can be told in something as grand as a sculpture or as small as a coin.
Then create your own story through print making and water colour painting in the CMAG Art Studio.

This program is aimed at children 6 – 12 years old. All children must be accompanied by an adult and bookings are essential.

When: Available on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays during the April school holidays
Time: 10:30am to 12:00pm
Where: Hosted by Canberra Museum & Gallery (CMAG)
176 London Cct, Canberra ACT
Price: Child $15, CMAG Members $12
