This NCLT commemorative 50 cent coin produced by the RAM is part of the "Possum Magic" six coin Baby Coin set for 2020. The set also contains standard 5, 10 & 20 cent UNC copper-nickel coins and standard $1 and $2 aluminium-bronze UNC coins.
The theme for the Baby Coin set is based on the classic Australian children's book Possum Magic. The reverse of the coin is the same as the 2018 & 2019 Baby Set 50 cent coin, however the Obverse has been updated with the Jody Clark 6th Portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.
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 50 cent coin depicts "Grandma Poss using bush magic".
A colourised version of the coin is available in the 2020 Proof Baby Set (See Link)
