The 2014 Baby Set once again features Ethel Pedley’s 1899 classic Dot and the Kangaroo. This story painted a portrait of Australia as a place of great natural beauty, unique terrain and quirky, lovable animals.
Dot and the Kangaroo has since become a much loved Australian children’s story. Both the book and the 1977 feature film provide an insight into the experience of early settlers intertwined with the fantasy of the Australian bush coming alive.
The baby set comprises all the 2014-dated uncirculated versions of Australia’s circulating coins – 5c, 10c, 20c, 50c and $2. It includes an exclusive $1 coin featuring Dot, the Kangaroo and her creator Ethel Pedley.
This is the only way to purchase the specially designed one dollar coin featuring Dot and the Kangaroo and her creator Ethel C Pedley and a special colour printed medallion. This will make the uncirculated 2014 Baby Set a popular choice with both new parents and coin collectors.
Ideal gift for newborn babies, christening and birthday presents
