The Royal Australian Mint has launched a nation-wide treasure hunt with the introduction of millions of new coins with special markings on them, worth a lot more than they seem.
In celebration of 35 years of the Aussie $1, and as a an attempt to get younger generations to begin coin collecting, the mint has created three million $1 coins marked with either the letters A, U or S, as well as the number ’35’.
‘Australia’s Dollar Discovery’ program tasks you to find all three coins to be eligible to win one of eight trips to Canberra on offer, including accommodation at Jamala Wildlife Lodge at the National Zoo and Aquarium. Winners also get the opportunity to mint their own one-kilogram silver coin.
The winners will be announced on the 35th anniversary of the $1 coin on May 14th, 2019.
