Imagine if the animals on Australia’s circulating coins were transformed into adorable baby toys!
The 2021 Proof Baby Coin Set from the Royal Australian Mint does just that, creating a uniquely Australian and simply adorable numismatic memento. The perfect first gift for any little newborn collector!
The Royal Australian Mint has released annual baby sets since 1995 with themes including classic children’s stories and adorable baby animals.
For the 2021 Proof Baby Coin Set we have looked a little closer to home and reimagined three of Australia’s distinct circulating coin as gorgeous baby toys.
A posable wooden echidna snuggles on the 5c, a cute wind-up platypus swims amongst the bubbles on the 20c, while an adorable mob of cuddly plush kangaroos flop about on the back of the $1 coin.
Altogether, they create a unique and engaging year set that celebrates the arrival of a new baby, the wonders of a child’s imagination and the simple joys of collecting.
