Australia 2021 Proof Baby 6-Coin Year Set
Obverse: Elizabeth II to right, legend around
Reverse: Circulating and commemorative coin designs
This cute and engaging set is a popular gift for those born in 2021.
Australia has been producing proof year sets packaged with a "baby" theme since 1995.
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 sets are produced in far lower numbers than standard proof sets, so they're 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.
Possum Magic - A Much Loved Australian Illustrated Children's Book
The two main characters in the book are Grandma Poss and Hush - Hush has been made invisible by Grandma to protect her from Australian bush dangers.
The story details the duo's adventures as they tour Australia searching for the secret to Hush's visibility.
Fox wrote her first draft for Possum Magic in 1978, during a course in children's literature at Flinders University. Over five years, nine publishers rejected the draft. When it was accepted by Omnibus Books in Adelaide they asked Fox to reduce the four-and-a-half page book, then titled Hush the Invisible Mouse, by two-thirds and to change the mice to Australian animals to place emphasis on her Australian theme.
The Wikipedia record describing the book states that as of 2011, Possum Magic had sold three million copies!
The certificate of authenticity features a blank family tree that can be customized for the newborn's family, as well as a section that can be used to all of baby's measurements and birth details.
There's also an open panel that a photo of the newborn can be inserted into.
Feels and Looks Like It Will Stand the Test of Time
The first thing you appreciate when you pick up the 2019 Proof Baby 6-Coin Year Set is the superb quality of the presentation case - it definitely feels like it has been well made.
Even to the untrained eye, the graphic design is elegant and restrained - the certificate and the presentation case sleeve have a timeless look to them, and are sure to look just as good in 5, 10 or 20 years time as they do today.
Most importantly, the coins themselves have an obvious, high quality finish - they are easily far better quality than the coins we see struck for circulation, and exhibit a vivid cartwheeling lustre.
The 2019 Proof Baby 6-Coin Year Set a superbly designed, limited-edition heirloom - perfect to put away for baby‚Äôs future.
