2016 Four Coin Uncirculated Mintmark and Privy mark Set Australia’s First Mints.
For this special year, the set includes an ‘S’, ‘M’ and ‘P’ privy mark, denoting the locations of the first mints. The ‘C’ mintmark completes the collection. The coins’ reverse emulate a Sydney Mint sovereign design. The Royal Australian Mint opened in 1965, superseding other Australian mints to become the sole producer of the country’s decimal coins. For several years, a highlight in visiting the Royal Australian Mint has been the gallery press. Here visitors can strike their own C mintmark coin which celebrates an event or tradition of national significance.
