The Mobile Mint Team held a pop-up shop in Bendigo on Monday.

Visitors were able to strike an ‘Australia’ counterstamp on  their own 2019 $1 coin, swap coins or cash for freshly minted special circulating coins and browse new products from the Mint.

The Royal Australian Mint recognises the significance of the lasting impact that the bushranging era has had on Australia, including its role in shaping Australian art, literature, music, culture, and the myth of the Australian “Larrikin”, so themed the roadshow as The Bold, the Bad and the Ugly.
