The Royal Australian Mint will be hosting their annual Last Coin of the Year event on 31st December and their First Coin of the Year event on 1st January - both events have free entry.
On December 31st at 4:30pm, they will hold a lucky door draw at the Mint for the last coins of the year. They will draw the last 10 customers to strike a coin and each winner will receive a certificate authenticating their last coin for 2019. Ticketing closes: 4.25 pm.
On January 1st, between 7am and 9am, every person on site at the Mint will receive 1 ticket to go into the ballot to declare 100 people to receive the first coins of 2020. Ticketing closes at 9am.
Please note: Similar to last year, the public will no longer be required to line up at the Mint overnight. In fact, due to concerns about health and safety, the Mint requests no visitors line up at the Mint before 7 am on New Year's Day. See the Facebook events for details.
