2016 $1 100th Anniversary of Gumnut Babies Coin & Stamp Cover PNC.

Originally published in 1916, May Gibbs’ Gumnut Babies went on to become a much-loved Australian children’s classic. Her creation of a fantasy world within the Australian Bush, using creatures and images that were well-recognised and found right across the country, has fascinated generations of Australians for decades. Creating characters out of gumnuts, banksias, flowers and other Australian flora and fauna, Gibbs captured the imagination of children and adults alike, employing humour to appeal to all ages. Her accompanying illustrations reflected the beauty and uniqueness of the bush, bringing her stories to life.

The Perth Mint and Australia Post have released this cover to celebrate the 100th Anniversary. Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the uncirculated aluminium bronze coin is housed in a beautifully designed card with a circular window revealing the coin’s reverse and obverse designs.

This beautiful Stamp & Coin Cover is sure to make a wonderful gift or collectable. The coin’s reverse features two adorable Gumnut Babies sitting amongst native flowers. The design includes the inscription MAY GIBBS GUMNUT BABIES 100th ANNIVERSARY and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ Mintmark. Affixed to the envelope is an official Australia Post $1 stamp. The stamp is postmarked First Day of Issue and includes Australia Post’s Seal of Authenticity.
