18 May 2018
The Royal Australian Mint is hitting the road and bringing the minting experience to towns and cities around Australia on the 2018 Rascals and Ratbags Roadshow.
The national tour will be visiting Melbourne on Friday 18 May.
The Mobile Mint Team will be setting up a pop-up shop in Federation Square where you can strike an ‘Australia’ counterstamp onto a Rascals and Ratbags $1 coin, swap coins or cash for freshly minted and special circulating coins, plus browse new products from the Mint.
Rascals and Ratbags is a yearlong theme at the Mint and acknowledges the contributions of Australia’s convicts to our history, heritage and folklore. Some were rascals, others ratbags, but each had their own special stories.
