champagne Know your notaphily from your scripophily?

Comfortable around exonumists?

You would have been a hit at a recent dinner party, then.

See, the Royal Australian Mint threw a dinner back at the end of February to celebrate… itself.  More specifically, to celebrate its 50th anniversary.

The hoi polloi of the numismatic community rubbed shoulders in a shindig so fancy that it was covered by the social pages.

Here’s the bad news though: it cost you a touch over $80,000. (See here, here, and here.)

Considering the cost of past taxpayer-funded parties – see here, and here – the Mint gala dinner represents an alarming new chapter in the taxpayer’s catering career.

WasteWatch will raise a glass of something privately-funded to the quick demise of this enforced career.
