Two icons of Australian children's literature have been enshrined in legal tender, in this beautiful, full-colour duo from the Royal Australian Mint. Affordable, superbly presented and strictly limited in mintage, this charming set will delight readers and collectors alike.

It's hard to believe it's been 100 years since children's literature sensations Snugglepot & Cuddlepie and The Magic Pudding were first published. In honour of their centenary, the RAM has released this beautiful pair of coloured $1 coins. Each bears a full-colour motif inspired by the story's original illustrations, underpinned by a Frosted Uncirculated finish.

May Gibbs had a passion for the Australian bush. It was this passion - and her strong environmental message - that made Tales of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie such a memorable hit. The story of two Gumnut brothers evading danger on their quest to find a human, Snugglepot and Cuddlepie has not been out of print in the hundred years since first published.

Legend has it that Norman Lindsay wrote The Magic Pudding to settle an argument. A friend had told him that children wanted to read about fairies. Lindsay staunchly believed that they'd rather read about 'food and fighting' - and thus, the tale of a walking, talking pudding was born. Needless to say, it was a hit.

Each coin has been strictly limited to a mintage of just 30,000 - making it an exclusive acquisition. Both arrive housed in individual presentation cases, set within an illustrated outer sleeve.

If last year's Possum Magic success is anything to go by, demand is red-hot for Australian Children's Literature-inspired releases! A tremendous gift idea, don't miss your chance to secure this delightful duo - click 'add to cart' now!
