One of the questions troubling postal operators is how to drive more customers to the post office network.
Australia Post has launched the Great Aussie Coin Hunt – a partnership with the Royal Australian Mint. Specially minted collectible coins will be distributed via participating post offices, but only when customers make a purchase.
When customers buy something at the post office, they will receive the $1 collectable coins in their change.
The themed coins in the Great Aussie Coin Hunt reflect Australian icons… and of course, A for Australia Post. What else would it possibly be?
The first six coins to be released include: A for Australia Post, F for footy (the second-most Australian word there is, and the most printable Australian word), I for Iced VoVo (an excellent choice), M for meat pie (P had better be for “pastie”!), S for Surf Life Saving (not “submarines and Harold Holt”), and X for the tiny township of Xantippe.
New coins will be released each Monday until 21 October 2019 to complete the full set of 26, all the way up to Z for Zooper Dooper.
