This NCLT commemorative $1 coin produced by the RAM is part of the "Possum Magic" eight coin set made available for a price of $15 from Woolworths supermarkets from 15/8/2017. It was also available from the RAM. The set also contains three circulating $2 and three other non-circulating $1 coins and a special non-circulating commemorative 1 cent coin. The theme for the set of eight coins is based on the classic Australian children's book "Possum Magic". The 1 cent coin and four $1 coins are only available in the eight coin set. The three $2 coins are being released into circulation at Woolworths supermarkets over a period of two weeks.
The Possum Magic Book was first published in 1983 and is a whimsical picture book written by Mem Fox about two possums, Grandma Poss and Baby Hush, and their travels around Australia sampling food in their quest to make Hush visible again after he was made invisible by the magic of Grandma Poss.
This particular $1 coin relates to the fact that "By eating special food, Hush will stay visible forever".
