Newsletters and Journals

The Study Group published a regular newsletter (called The National Mint from about 2000).

In addition to the newsletters, the Study Group published an occasional journal called Lasianthos, the aim of which was to provide information on the latest research into the Australian Mint Bush family. Three issues are available for download. It is not known if any subsequent issues were published.

Development of a Study Group website was undertaken by the then leader of the Group in 2003. Apparently, it was proposed to distribute both The National Mint and Lasianthos publications on the website.

As far as is known, the website project was never finished but an incomplete online issue of The National Mint (Vol. 2 No.4; December 2002) was published there as well as a template for an online version of Lasianthos.

The website no longer exists but at least some of it is archived on The Internet Archive
