Description:

AUSTRALIA 1998 BABY MINT SET Bicentennial of Bass & Flinders circumnavigation of Tasmania commemorative

A truly scarce "Baby" mint set including the scarce Bass & Flinders 50 cent piece.

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 1998 50¢ coin features the portraits of George Bass and Matthew Flinders, as well as a map of their route around Tasmania. The 1998 proof set is also one of the few whose value on the secondary market has stayed well above issue price - not bad for an item that's been out for over a decade now!
