  1. That’s the fugliest design for native fauna so far…and I thought this year’s Kook looked like a couple of Pineapples with wings

  3. As an ex employee of the Mint, I am embarrased to tell you that I believe your design standards have not just fallen but have collapsed.
    You now rely far too much on pad printing and the cleverness of the old designers who could make a believable image from an engraved, well designed idea has disappeared.
    The image of the frog on the Ausatralian Seasons coin is so bad I can not believe you have the gall to release it. The designer has obviously never seen a green tree frog (which we have in abundance in our back yard here in north Queensland where we now reside).
    Can you not go back to the archives and get some of the good ideas out that got Perth Mint its good reputation to try and inspire some more? As the current inventry of pad printed cheapies does not invoke a feeling of quality.
    Your product even looks cheap when compared to Canberra’s product – I saw them side by side in a local Australia Post shop today and the Australian Mint’s product looked vastly superior in quality.
