I haven’t visited the Easter Show RAM mobile press in years, but as I was in the area last week, I thought I’d drop by and say hello.
Here are a few pictures from the visit:
The entrance to the hall where the RAM mobile press was set up.
The Royal Australian Mint stand.
The portable press that marks the pre-minted dollar coins with an “S” counterstamp.
This coin tray contains pre-minted dollar coins without the “S” counterstamp. (These would be very valuable if accidentally issued without the “S” mark.)
The reverse die is the anvil die. The mintmark is counterstamped on the reverse of a pre-minted coin.
