Australian children have been fascinated by Possum Magic’s delightful tale since 1983. Mem Fox’s beloved story introduced many generations to Grandma Poss and young Hush, who has been made invisible by her grandmother’s special bush magic. Brought to life by Julie Vivas’s beautiful illustrations, the narrative takes readers on a journey through Australia’s capital cities as Grandma Poss and Hush consume many Australian delicacies in the search for the magical ingredient to undo the spell.
A unique celebration of the story’s ability to touch the hearts of young Australians, this beautiful six-coin set is an ideal way to celebrate the birth of a child in 2019.
Six Australian Legal Tender Coins
The set contains 2019-dated 5c, 10c, 20c, 50c and $1 coins portraying Stuart Devlin’s famous decimal designs introduced in 1966 and a 2019-dated $2 coin designed by Horst Hanhe.
Special 50c Reverse Design and Coloured Token
The 50c coin’s reverse features a special sculpted representation of one of Julie Vivas’ beautiful illustrations, the inscription ‘POSSUM MAGIC’ and the monetary denomination. A special addition, the coloured token depicts Hush eating a lamington on her quest to regain her visibility.
Themed Presentation Packaging
The set is packaged in a Possum Magic-themed coin folder which includes space to write birth facts about a newborn child.
