2018 Uncirculated Possum Magic Six Coin Baby Year Set - Bonus Token

On the 35th anniversary of one of Australia’s most celebrated children’s books, Possum Magic by Mem Fox and Julie Vivas, the Royal Australian Mint has dedicated its 2018 Baby Sets to commemorating a child’s birth year. Featuring one of the book’s celebrated illustrations on the fifty cent coin and another on a colour printed token, it is an ideal gift for those who welcome a new child into their families in 2018.

HISTORY AND SIGNIFICANCE Since its publication in 1983, Australian children have been captivated by Possum Magic. Mem Fox and Julie Vivas’ delightful – and truly Australian – picture book has introduced many young Australians to the story of Grandma Poss and her granddaughter Hush. Long ago, Grandma Poss has made Hush invisible to protect her from the perils of the bush. One day, when Hush decides that she would like to see what she looks like, Grandma Poss is at a loss. She remembers her magic has something to do with food—’people’ food—and so the two possums take a journey around Australia to find Australian treat that will make Hush visible again. Possum Magic celebrates not only Australia’s unique animals and foods but also the warmth of family and the imaginative possibilities the world has to offer. It was awarded the 1984 Ethel Turner Prize in the NSW Premier’s Literary Awards and the 1994 Canberra’s Own Outstanding List Award. On the 35th anniversary of its publication, Possum Magic is still striking a chord with the newest generation of Australian readers. FEATURES AND DESIGN • Fifty cent coin’s reverse features a special sculpted design of one of Julie Vivas’ beautiful illustrations • Packaged in a Possum Magic-themed coin folder • Includes a special colour printed token of Hush eating a lamington • Six coin set • Coins’ obverses feature the effigy of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II sculpted by Ian Rank-Broadley • Australian legal tender
