Royal Australian Mint wins award for Donation Dollar

Royal Australian Mint

The Royal Australian Mint was announced as the Best CashTech award winner for its Donation Dollar Program at the CashTech Innovation Awards in Türkiye. The CashTech Innovation Awards were held during the Future of Cash Conference in Istanbul from 6-8 November 2023. The Awards, organised by the independent French-based think tank CashEssentials, recognise innovations that facilitate access to and acceptance of cash. The world-first Donation Dollar program – released in 2020 – aims to engage all Australians in a moment of generosity, prompted by a simple $1 coin. The intention behind the program is twofold: to promote charitable behaviour and to provide a tangible, accessible way for people (who have the means to) to enjoy the benefit of giving a small amount more frequently.
