A playful puppy adorns this colourful coin, recognising the 150th anniversary of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) in Australia. Commonly referred to as ‘man’s best friend,’ dogs are often considered part of the family and play important roles in society too. This unique coin means you can take your four-legged friend everywhere you go!
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.
The RSPCA promotes the welfare of all animals. In fact, its moniker is “for all creatures, great and small”.
The puppy coin is unique, with a colourful eye-catching design and will appeal to dog lovers, coin collectors and animal devotees.
The RSPCA: 150 Years Dog postal numismatic cover is highly collectable, featuring a pictorial envelope with the $1.10 Protection stamps from the stamp issue and a coin from the Royal Australian Mint.
