Royal Australian Mint Annual Report 2010-2011

November 3, 2011

The Royal Australian Mint has just made available their annual report for the last financial year 1 July 2010 to 30 June 2011. This means that we can all get a clearer picture of what coins were actually produced, sold and released into circulation, their designs and actual numbers. We gain from this insight into low mintages and coins that we didn't even know about!

Without going into too much detail as it's a long report, at first glance it doesn't look too out of the ordinary. Remember for a complete mintage you have to take production over 2 financial year reports (or more) to get accurate numbers. This means some of the production numbers will add to existing numbers and some will only be part of the total mintage. Over the coming week or so I will be updating the mintages in the Complete One Dollar Master Lists.

Aside from mintages the report gives us a roundup of general happenings at the Mint, read the full report.

Some standout mintage points to note are:

  • Circulating $1 and $2 coins were minted for the Cook Islands.
  • 7,000 standard 10c coins dated 2008 were minted.

  • no more Frilled Neck Lizard $1's in the coloured Land Series have been minted.

  • Additional mintages of the $5 State Series proof silver coins.

  • NCLT for Fiji has been minted.

  • Royal Wedding 20c issued in the coin swap has a separate entry.

  • The 400 2010 Decimal Heritage Sets appears to be missing.
    (note 11/11/11 the RAM have confirmed that there were in fact 400 sets minted and they were not listed on the report, there will be an amendment in next years report.)
