A very exciting release! Enter the fantasy world of Graeme Base’s most beloved book, 1986’s Animalia. Captured by the Royal Australian Mint for first time on a colourful legal tender coin – the 35th Anniversary of Animalia coin is also the launch issue of a new series celebrating classic Australian children’s books!

Surreal animal illustrations taught a generation of Australians to read the alphabet through highly detailed pictures, often hiding secret layers of meaning. This captivating, detailed coin is struck to Uncirculated finish and features illustrations from the book, notably the ‘Lazy Lion’ – one of Base’s most famous images!

Packaged in a beautifully designed Animalia presentation card, with a limited edition of 50,000 – almost everyone in Australia will want one, not to mention the book’s fans around the world!
