2013 Baby Proof Coin Set Dot and the Kangaroo
Based on a timeless Australian children’s story.
Australia has been producing proof year sets packaged with a "baby" theme since 1995.
There have been several different presentation designs over the past 20 years, each with a uniquely Australian theme. More than a a few of the sets that have been released over the past 2 decades now sell for far more than they were initially sold for.
Proof coins are the same as those we see in our change, but are struck with specially prepared machinery on specially prepared blanks - the designs always stand out magnificently.
Baby proof coin sets are produced in far lower numbers than standard proof coin sets, so they are far harder to get.
Couple this with the fact that those parents & grandparents that didn't get them when they first came out are willing to pay over the odds to get them, and these sets are great to put away.
Between 2012 to 2014, the Royal Australian Mint’s Baby Coin Set series featured a design theme based on "Dot and the Kangaroo".
This much-loved Australian children’s book was written by Ethel C. Pedley (way back!) in 1899 and follows the adventures of a young girl by the name of Dot, who is befriended in the Australian outback by a kangaroo and several other marsupials.
Countless Australian children across a number of generations have loved the stories of Dot and the Kangaroo. An animated movie on Dot and the Kangaroo was released in 1977 and was the second animated feature ever made in Australia and the first to find commercial success. The themes and emotional messages in the Dot and the Kangaroo animated movie are regarded as being timeless (even if the technology used in the movie - simple animation on top of live-action backgrounds looks decidedly old school!)
The 2013 baby coin set includes each Australian coin issued into circulation in 2013, in magnificent proof condition.
The certificate includes space for the child's family tree and a photograph to be included.
