A national treasure hunt has been launched, and Australia is very much at the centre.
In a joint effort, the Royal Australian Mint and Australia Post will see thousands of $1 coins distributed from post offices around the country from today.
The coins are marked to celebrate all things iconic to Australia: the meat pie, a boomerang, Vegemite, and a Hills Hoist, just to name a few.
Officially called The Great Aussie Coin Hunt, to Australia Post executive Nicole Sheffield it is more about reflecting on 'the good old days' and making connections.
"We want everyone to get involved in the Great Aussie Coin Hunt," she said.
"Not only will it be really exciting to hunt for all the coins and build an amazing collection, but each and every coin opens up the opportunity for wonderful conversations about quintessential Australian life.
"It's a great way for grandparents to connect with grandchildren, and for all of us to share our own experiences and memories with each other - both here and with friends and family overseas."
The hunt begins today with the release of the first six coins, of which there are 26 to go with the letters of the alphabet.
A is for Australia Post, B is for boomerang, C is for Cricket, and so on.
So how do collectors join the hunt?
"Customers can join in the hunt by coming into any one of the 3,600 participating Post Offices, making a purchase and receiving the $1 collectable coins in their change," Australia Post states.
"During October, participating Post Offices will replace the coins in their tills with the collectable coins to give out to customers in their change."
The coins are being released in a specific order over the next four weeks.
First up are the letters A, F, I, M, S, X - to coincide with outback themes, then it's letters to reminisce about the 'burbs, unique animals and beach cricket.
The coins are Australian legal tender and a further six to eight coins will be released each Monday until October 21, 2019.
