2017 Bananas in Pyjamas 25th Anniversary 2 Coin & Stamp Cover PNC

Australia's first ever coloured five cent coin is pairing up with the 20 cent coin in a bright and cheerful two coin set to celebrate 25 years of the Bananas in Pyjamas on ABC KIDS.

Enchanting young viewers with imagination-filled ideas, B1 and B2 and friends make this set a must-have foe gift buyers, young collectors and nostalgic fans.

In a 1967 children's song by Carey Blyton, the world was introduced to the imagination-filled idea of pyjama-clad bananas running down stairs in duos, chasing teddy bears on Tuesdays. The song was soon adopted into the repertoire of the beloved Australian children's television program Play School, where it became familiar fare for the country's pre-schoolers.

As the years passed, the song and its banana stars were turned into an animated story on Play School, before having such a impact that the storyline was spun off into its own show in 1.

For the past 25 years, Bananas in Pyjamas has been an iconic staple of children's viewing sharing important learnings about cooperation, friendship, creativity and enjoyment.

The formidable pair of B! and B2 was also featured in the closing ceremony of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games and make a mark on American television (outrating Sesame Street) in the 1990's.

This is the first ever coloured 5c coin, along with a coloured 20c coin, to mark 25 years.

The reverse design on the 20c coin features Bananas in Pyjamas chasing teddy bears.

The reverse design on the 5c coin features Bananas in Pyjamas anniversary logo and Rat in a Hat.

Includes an Official Australia Post $1 Stamp featuring the Bananas in Pyjamas.

Postmarked First Day of Issue 20 June 2017 Canberra ACT 2600.

The obverse of the coin features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II sculpted by Ian Rank-Broadley.

Each coin is issued as Australian legal tender.
