Comments

This NCLT coloured 20 cent release by the Royal Australian Mint is part of a two coin set and has been paired up with Australia's first ever coloured 5 cent coin. Both coins commemorate 25 years of the "Bananas in Pyjamas" segment of the Australian children's television series "Play School". The two coins are frosted uncirculated and are packaged in coin capsules that are placed in a children's book type folder.
These two coins were also released as a Postal Numismatics Cover by Australia Post at the ANDA Melbourne Money Expo.
