New to Canberra, I love exploring this city and the secrets that it holds with my family.

Coin collectors around Canberra will be descending on The Royal Australian Mint on New Year's Eve to enter the draw to purchase the last gallery pressed coin for 2015. Visitors can press this collector coin all year around for $3 in the foyer, however the unique design will change on January 1st and collectors aim to press the last coin for 2015 and the first coin for 2016.
