Dreaming down under

Like all young marsupials, a baby Tasmanian devil is known as a joey – a shy and defenceless version of its adult protectors. Beautifully realised, the artistry on this postal numismatic cover captures the creature’s vulnerability to perfection.


01 2021  DDU Devil PNC

Sweet design

Struck by The Perth Mint from aluminium bronze, the coin pictures a cute Tasmanian devil asleep in a fleece-lined twig basket – a prop that has created a popular trend in newborn photography among parents all around the world. Included on the coin’s reverse is the Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

Themed envelope

As well as featuring a coloured representation of the young animal, the beautifully illustrated postage paid envelope also features a Greenbushes WA post mark dated 13 July 2021.
