Comments

This NCLT commemorative 5 Cent coin produced by the RAM is part of the "Baby Coins" six coin Baby Coin set for 2021

The Royal Australian Mint celebrates the arrival of your newest bundle of joy with its 2021 Uncirculated Baby Coin Set. This uniquely and cutely numismatic set re-imagines three of Australia’s distinct circulating coins as gorgeous baby toys.

The same coins are available in the Uncirculated Set and the Proof Set


A wooden echidna sits on this 5 cent coin, a cute wind-up platypus swims amongst the bubbles on the 20c, while an adorable mob of cuddly plush kangaroos flop about on the back of the $1 coin. Altogether, they create a cute and engaging year set that celebrates the arrival of a new baby, the wonders of a child’s imagination and the simple joys of collecting.
