The Royal Australian Mint has partnered with the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the organisation’s work in Australia. Founded in London in 1824 and then in Australia in 1871, the RSPCA works to protect all animals from cruelty.
An independent charity, the organisation relies on community support to run animal rehoming shelters, investigate complaints of animal cruelty and educate the community about responsible pet ownership and animal welfare.
This vibrantly coloured set will appeal to animal lovers and coin collectors around Australia. A dollar from the sale of every set will go to the RSPCA to help them continue their vital work for all animals great and small.
Each set includes:
- Eight individual coins with unique and colourful animal design
- Includes the limited edition wombat coin only available in this set
- Limited issue of 7,500 sets, which reflects the mintage of the wombat coin
- Uncirculated finish
- Australian legal tender
- Packaged as individual cards and presented in a box
