We must be close to the announcement of a new Chief Executive Officer at our circulating coin production facility the Royal Australian Mint. Current CEO Ross MacDiarmid steps down at the end of this week after 10 years at the helm. We met Ross on a number of occasions in the past 10 years at various coin launches, collecting events and most recently at the Numismatic Society of South Australia’s (NSSA) coin expo dinner in 2019. His commitment to coins, collectors, the Mint and having a genuine old chin wag was nothing but impressive.
The Blog team (Kathryn and Mark) wishes Ross all the best in his future endeavours and hope Friday brings lots of cake. Here’s one you prepared earlier!
