RSL Art Union Account

If these steps have not solved the issue please call our customer service team on 1300 775 888 or send an enquiry via our Contact Us page.

How do I update my contact/payment information?

You can update your contact details and financial institution on your RSL Art Union Account by signing into the account on the sign in page on this site or by contacting our customer service team on 1300 775 888.

Selecting a password to secure your account

How to choose a secure password

  • We recommend that you use a combination of uppercase/lowercase letters, numbers and symbols.
  • Use as many characters as you can - a longer password is harder to guess.
  • Avoid anything that can be easily guessed such as your name, address, birthday, or common quotes and phrases.
  • Consider using a passphrase, which is similar to a password but instead of creating a string of uppercase/lowercase letters, numbers and symbols, use words that tell a story. For example: ILik3JohnGrish@m. It is a phrase that is easy to remember for you, but very difficult to guess for anyone else.

How to secure your password

  • Do not share your passwords with anyone.
  • Do not write your passwords down anywhere.
  • Make them unique – reusing a password multiple times makes it less secure, as it only requires one breach to compromise all the different places where that password is used.
  • If you have many accounts across many different sites, consider using passphrases instead of passwords.
  • Wherever available, enable two-factor authentication, which adds an additional check to prove your identity as it requires you to enter a code sent directly to you to confirm your identity.

What is the Bonus Book prize?

The Bonus Book prize is for those who purchase multiple tickets over the value of $5. The prize ranges between $10,000 and $100,000 in gold bullion. The bonus prize is awarded to the first prize winner and is determined by the value of their ticket purchase.

For our twice a year Golden Treasure book buyer's prize, ticket purchases from $30 will receive gold bullion between $30,000 and $100,000. The bonus prize is awarded to the first prize winner only and is determined by the value of the ticket purchase.

What happens if I win gold bullion?

You have the option of taking possession of the gold bullion, or you can sell the gold bullion to claim its value in cash. Please note that gold selling costs and market variations do apply when selling the gold bullion.

How do I find out if I am a winner?

After each draw, the winners are notified by Registered Mail and we will attempt to contact the first prize winner by phone. A full list of winners is available on the website. You can also see public notices in 'The Courier Mail' and 'The Australian' two days after the draw. Click here to view the latest winners.

When will the details of each draw be released to the public?

Full details of the draw will be available on our website on the open day of the Art Union. We will email you on the open day of the draw, giving you all of the draw details and the chance to order tickets. If you would like to keep up with the latest information on our draws you can do so though our RSL Art Union Facebook page or via email.

Do I have to pay tax on the first prize if I win?

You can sell completely tax free at the prize value. If you sell at a higher rate than its value then capital gains on the difference may apply. We advise all our winners to engage professional financial advice to fully understand any tax implications.

Where is the draw held?

Due to government restrictions we are unable to invite the public to our draws until further notice. Of course, the draws will still be subject to all the usual controls, including being supervised by an external auditor. As usual, results of draws will be published on our website here. We apologise for the inconvenience and look forward to welcoming you back at a later date.
