As well as being the sole producer of Australia's circulating coin, the Mint has struck coins for a number of South Pacific nations; produces a range of collector coin products in precious metal and base metal, for sale in Australian and overseas markets; and manufactures medals, medallions, seals and tokens for private and public sectors and sporting and tourism groups, both nationally and internationally. The Mint is also a major tourist attraction in Canberra.
