Mint bakes up biggest dollar

November 18th, 2010 – This giant coin cake was on display at the Royal Australian Mint in Canberra last week in celebration of Making it memorable - a launch of the Mint’s 2011 gift range.

The cake, which was 1 metre in diameter, featured Australia’s famous ‘mob of roos’ design as seen on the circulating $1 coin and was certainly a one-of-a kind release from the Mint. The giant cake had been on display at the Mint before moving to the Making it memorable product launch event happening on Saturday 6 November 2010 outside the Budawang Pavilion at Exhibition Park in Mitchell where it was cut up and shared.
