    So the Royal Aust Mint has released (a limited edition???) set of Aust $1.00 coins via Aust Post .

    https://auspost.com.au/great-aussie-coin-hunt#gach__coins

    Don't know what mintage will be like and doesn't say you can purchase these uncirculated, only via receiving change over the counter from Aust Post.

    I like the images used, good fun (Iced Vovo $1.00 coin) and I suspect a full set will attract some premium (like a Little Coles Shop set) but what that value will be?????

    Anyone come into possession yet?

    Images of coins below.

    It is very weird business from RAM. According to RAM website the 6 coins will be released every week and send to Post Office. 6 coins has been released so far but on ebay you can buy all 26 coins if you are lucky /different sellers/.How RAM allows those people get these coins now and in such quantities? I agree that full set can attract heavy premium. They selling now between $6-$10 per coin on Ebay.

    I've recently found 2 x $1 coins with little letters in square boxes from a previous RAM coin challenge. I'll keep a look out for the latest ones now. images (6).jpeg

    RAM reports 1.5 million of this "A" (and both the U & S) Dollar Discovery coins were minted.
