Australian Dollar Mintage Update -Royal Australian Mint Annual Report 2012-2013

November 15, 2013

2013 Dollar Coins

The annual report for the Royal Australian Mint was made public just a few days ago. This means we can embark on the task of updating mintage numbers and begin to get an idea of the real production of Australian coins for both circulation and non-circulating legal tender. Coins are often released with mintage numbers printed on a certificate of authenticity or on the packaging but this doesn't always reflect the demand for that issue with batches of coins often being minted on demand throughout the year. This mintage number is often the maximum number of coins that the Mint will make of this type. Absolute final mintage numbers for particular issues can often be found within 2 or more annual reports spanning the financial year 1 July to 30 June.

The Mint annual report is a 123 page document with the appendices containing the circulating coin production numbers and collector coin release summaries. It's a daunting task to match up RAM product codes with what we know was released throughout the year.

It appears we've now finalised the numbers for 2010 with more mob of roos dollars minted for circulation in the 2012-2013 fiscal year. It also appears that we have no one dollar coins minted for circulation in 2012. A mint set only year of issue. The 2011, 2012 and 2013 mintage numbers have also now been updated with the latest data.
