Coin Design Follows Popular Bush Babies Silver Proof Series
Struck by The Perth Mint in uncirculated aluminium bronze, the $1 coin in this delightful Stamp and Coin Cover portrays a cute baby bilby atop an impression of native wildflowers. The design also includes the bilby’s insect ‘friend’, a grasshopper, and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
Australian Legal Tender
Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin portrays the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2011 year-date on its obverse.
Coloured Bilby Stamp
The coin is housed in a beautifully illustrated envelope featuring an Australia Post 60c stamp depicting the bilby in colour.
The grasshopper forms part of the stamp’s special postmark dated 6 September 2011.
Australia Post Seal of Authenticity
This charming collectable also features Australia Post’s Seal of Authenticity and its official number.
Beautifully Designed Presentation
Each coin is housed in a charming, specially designed card that fits inside the illustrated envelope with a circular window revealing the coin’s reverse and obverse designs.
The Perth Mint and Australia Post are pleased to present this wonderful stamp and coin cover series, featuring iconic baby animals gloriously illustrated by designer Elise Martinson.
