Description

2018 Six Coin Proof Baby Year Set

A new magical theme based on Possum Magic by Mem Fox and Julie Vivas has been introduced on the 2018 Proof Baby Coin Set. Whimsical, passionate, imaginative and proudly Australian, this coin set features a special colour printed proof fifty cent coin. It will be a truly special gift to celebrate the birth of a child in 2018.

HISTORY AND SIGNIFICANCE In many cultures throughout the world, coins are a traditional gift to mark the birth of a new child. With their ability to mark a moment in time and their status as a symbol of wealth and prosperity, they have come to symbolise our greatest hopes for our children. The Royal Australian Mint celebrates this special significance with the annual release of baby sets. Many of these have featured treasured Australian children’s stories - Dot and the Kangaroo, Blinky Bill, The Magic Pudding and Snugglepot and Cuddlepie have all been featured on these beloved releases. Their timeless appeal, imaginative content and positive messages have made them all fitting themes for such blessed events. Since 1983, Australian children have been delighted by the Australian picture book Possum Magic. Mem Fox’s lyrical tale and Julie Vivas’ whimsical illustrations have taken readers on a journey around Australia’s capital cities, sampling Australian delicacies in a quest to find a special magical food. On the 35th anniversary of its first publication, it is a worthy theme for the 2018 Proof Baby Coin Set. FEATURES AND DESIGN • A celebration of the 35th anniversary of Possum Magic • Fifty cent coin’s reverse features a special colour printed design of one of Julie Vivas’ beautiful illustrations • Six proof coin set • Continuing the annual tradition of Royal Australian Mint proof baby coin sets • Certificate of authenticity • Coins’ obverses feature the effigy of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II sculpted by Ian Rank-Broadley • Australian legal tender
