Mem Fox’s Possum Magic has been capturing the hearts and minds of young Australians for more than 35 years. The classic tale follows young Hush, who has been made invisible by her grandmother’s special bush magic. Together with Grandma Poss, she journeys across the sunburnt country to find the magic food that will make her visible once more. Julie Vivas’s beautiful illustrations helped bring the exciting and uniquely Australian narrative to life.
This Australian legal tender six-coin set is released to celebrate the whimsy and national pride the story evokes, including a special colour printed 50c coin depicting the book’s iconic cover art. The perfect gift for newborns or those nostalgic for the cherished children’s book, the Baby Set Possum Magic Coin Collection 2019 Proof Coin Set captures the spirit of Australia.
