Item:312456660264DescriptionBrand New, Rare Set of 3 Australian 2019 one dollar coins - One with "A", one with "U" and one with the "S" Privy mystery mark on them. All 3 coins are marked 2019 and have the "35" on the front. All Uncirculated.The 3 coins all come in a Stable Coin Holder with clear plastic viewing to protect your investment. Gently handled, no fingerprints nor scratches. They (and all these privy marked ones) are from a bag of coins, NOT A ROLL. Which means some minor marks may appear on some due to handling while being shipped by the mint. Also, the photos show creased marks from the plastic cover - not coins. My other auctions show the mint bags involved. When sold by the mint, they are intended to be circulated. My coins have gone straight from the Royal mint bag into the coin holder.These are uncirculated, direct from the Royal Australian Mint - a must have for any coin collector.Standard shipping is free, but registered post is strongly recommended.Check my seller reviews, buy with confidence.The Royal Australian Mint said "The Aussie dollar is 35 (thats why one of the mystery marks is 35) years old. To celebrate, we’ve created Australia’s Dollar Discovery – a nation-wide treasure hunt. Simply collect the $1 coins specially marked with the number ‘35’ and either the letter A, U or S for your chance to win. There are over 1 million of each letter in circulation, so get hunting!" About the Australian Royal MintThe Royal Australian Mint is the sole producer of all of Australia's circulating coins. Opened in 1965 and situated in the Australian federal capital city of Canberra, in the suburb of Deakin, the Mint is also a very popular tourist destination for visitors and locals alikeThese coins were pressed by the Royal Australian Mint in September 2018 as shown in the item photo. They contain a collection of 2018 (very few) and 2019 (the majority) standard one dollar coins.Normally these bags are sent to large retail clients like banks for public distribution. What is this competition about?The Royal Australian Mint wished to make more Australians avid coin collectors and so they came up with a brilliant marketing plan. The nation’s first ever coin hunt, Australia’s Dollar Discovery, launched 1st November 2018 as a fun way to encourage the public, and families in particular, to engage with coin collecting.“At a time of growing ‘intangibility’, the Royal Australian Mint (the Mint) is delighted to launch a program to encourage a whole new generation of collectors both young and old, who will not only collect these coins but also be reminded of the value of a dollar,” says Ross MacDiarmid, CEO of the Royal Australian Mint.According to a poll of 1000 people commissioned by the Royal Australian Mint, most Australians agree that saving pocket money and collecting coins helps develop patience, persistence and financial literacy, particularly for children. The poll also found that nearly half of today’s adults have nostalgic memories of saving coins in their piggy banks and six in 10 now give kids coins to save or collect as a hobby.Australia’s Dollar Discovery will encourage more families and children to collect, with three million $1 coins marked with the letters A, U and S being released into circulation, providing an opportunity for people to begin their own collections.“The need to collect is as old as humanity and transcends time and culture. Australia’s Dollar Discovery is a nationwide treasure hunt that we hope encourages Australians of all ages and from every state and territory to check their change for these special coins,” says Ross MacDiarmid.Families who collect one of each coin can enter for their chance to win one of eight trips to Canberra where they will stay at Jamala Wildlife Lodge at the National Zoo and Aquarium and get the rare opportunity to mint their very own one kilogram pure silver coin. Winners will be announced on the 35th anniversary of the $1 coin, 14 May 2019 and the coins are also marked with the number 35.Avid coin collectors started noticing the mystery coins in September, well before the Mint disclosed the details.Condition:New, Direct from the Royal Australian Mint, Uncirculated, Obtained from a new Sealed Bag of 20 Coins.
