To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Gumnut Babies, Perth Mint has released a beautiful limited edition set sure to delight fans of May Gibbs. Featuring a limited edition copy of the Gumnut Babies book, with the coin nestled inside the front cover, this is a true collector’s item.
The coin is struck from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality. The original design depicts a colour image of seven Gumnut Babies sitting on a eucalypt tree branch, surrounded by gumnuts and gum leaves. The design includes the inscription MAY GIBBS GUMNUT BABIES 100TH ANNIVERSARY, and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
Each coin will be presented in the cover of a special limited edition Gumnut Babies book, displaying both the reverse and obverse of the coin. The book will sit within a beautifully illustrated pocket and contains a Certificate of Authenticity, which is individually numbered.
