COIN enthusiasts are invited to “mint their way to mischief” when the Royal Australian Mint's 2018 Rascals & Ratbags Roadshow visits Mildura later this month.
The national tour marks 150 years since the cessation of British penal transport, and the subsequent arrival of the last convict ship, the Hougoumount, to Australia.
