More than 1.6 million people gather around Sydney Harbour every year to see the globally renowned Sydney New Year’s Eve fireworks display.
Originally set against the backdrop of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the world-renowned Sydney New Year’s Eve fireworks, music and light extravaganza now incorporates the Opera House and barges strategically positioned in the harbour.
As the first international city to greet the New Year, Sydney’s spectacular New Year’s Eve fireworks are watched by over a million people around Sydney Harbour and broadcast to over a billion people worldwide.
In 2012, the Royal Australian Mint began collaborating with the City of Sydney on a coin program featuring Sydney’s world renowned New Year’s Eve celebrations.
Since then, the Mint has issued one dazzling Sydney New Year’s Eve coin each year to preserve that magic moment in time. The Sydney New Year’s Eve coins issued to date form part of a magnificent collection.
This limited edition coin makes the perfect memento for welcoming the New Year.
