The Aussie dollar turns 35 years old on 14 May 2019. To celebrate, the Royal Australian Mint will announce the winners of Australia’s Dollar Discovery competition - a nation-wide treasure hunt that engaged over 60,000 Australians from across every state and territory.

Around 41,000 Australians found and collected the $1 coins specially marked with the number ‘35’ and either the letter A, U or S for their chance to win one of the major prizes.

Winners of the major and minor prizes will be announced here on 14 May 2019.
