This NCLT commemorative coloured 50 cent coin produced by the RAM is part of the "Possum Magic" six coin Baby Coin Proof set for 2020. The set also contains standard 5, 10 & 20 cent Proof Copper-nickel coins and standard $1 and $2 Aluminium-bronze Proof coins. The theme for the Baby Coin set is based on the classic Australian children's book "Possum Magic". The same set was released in 2018 & 2019 but with the previous 4th Portrait IRB Effigy. This year the set has been updated with the new Jody Clark 6th Effigy.
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 coloured proof 50 cent coin depicts "Grandma Poss using bush magic".
A non-colourised version of the coin is also available in the UNC Baby Mint Set (See link)
