Royal Australian Mint 50th Anniversary Open Day

The Royal Australian Mint is hosting a party to celebrate its 50th birthday and you’re invited when they throw open the doors for a gala Open Day this Saturday.

Come along and see where 15 billion Australian circulating coins started their journey to your pocket.

Visitors will see some of the new coins of 2015 coming straight off the presses in a rare opportunity to walk-through the secure factory while coin production is underway. Last walk-through for the day will commence at 3.30pm.

Fun family activities include a band, sausage sizzle, fun with the Gecko Gang and their face-painting, jumping castle, popcorn and fairy floss machines, balloon animals, and displays from the ACT Emergency Services (Ambulance, Fire and Rescue, Rural Fire Service and SES), ACT Policing vehicles and Constable Kenny Koala. Plus you won’t want to miss out on the Mint’s birthday cake cutting at 10.30am.

Parking will be available in the Mint and Questacon Carparks, on Denison and surrounding streets. Overflow parking will be signposted, including on the grassed area at the rear of the Mint building.

*Visitors joining the Factory Walk-through will be asked to present any bags for inspection prior to entry.
