Description:

AUSTRALIA 1993 BABY MINT SET Water Is Life commemorative

The first baby MInt set ever issued, with the revised packaging.

Australia has been producing mint year sets packaged with a "baby" theme since 1993. The coins in mint sets are just the same as those we see in circulation, but are in perfect condition! Baby mint sets are produced in far lower numbers than standard mint 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.

The Landcare / Water Is Life commemorative one dollar coin didn't really resonate with collectors when it first came out - they weren't particularly hard to get from circulation, the reverse design wasn't seen as being particularly inspiring and the theme wasn't one that the public particularly warmed to. As the dollar mintmark coins have become more popular though, values of the Landcare dollars have risen over time.

As if that wasn't enough, you'll never find a 20¢ piece dated 1993 in your change, because they were only ever put out in the mint sets. This means the mint sets will be much tougher to get in years to come - a lot of them will be broken by collectors just wanting the 20¢ coins inside them!
