Fierce and feisty
From Australia’s island state of Tasmania, the devil is a feisty, carnivorous marsupial that acquired a somewhat chilling name from its screeching call. About the size of a small dog, ‘Tassie’ devils tend to become solitary animals once weaned.
The coin depicts a baby devil dozing in a fleece-lined twig basket – a prop that has created a popular trend in newborn photography among parents all around the world. As well as colourful Australian native flowers and wildlife, the design also incorporates The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
Accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity, the coin is housed in a classic display case with a clear lid which comes in a beautifully illustrated shipper.
