Following on from the runaway success of the first Royal Australian Mint Baby Coins, the 2022 Proof Baby Coin Set is sure to bring joy and delight to all. With three new custom coin designs this set is 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 2022 Proof Baby Coin Set the Mint has swapped over the coins from the 2021 set and reimagined them in a joyous baby theme.
The shy lyrebird on the 10c coin is now a winky-wonky marionette puppet, while the 50c coat of arms has been given a riotous party makeover with plush roo and emu. Finally, the $2 coin shows an adorable Indigenous baby, looking with giggling wonder at a cute star mobile. 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.
