To celebrate the centenary of two icons of Australian childrens’ literature, the Royal Australian Mint presents the set of two coloured $1 coins featuring The Tales of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie by May Gibbs, and The Magic Pudding by Norman Lindsay. Both published in 1918, these characteristically Australian books still delight readers. Everyone who treasures the classic stories will love this set, presenting the lively characters from both books.
Legend has it that Norman Lindsay wrote The Magic Pudding to settle an argument. A friend had told him that children wanted to read about fairies. Lindsay staunchly believed that they'd rather read about 'food and fighting' - and thus, the tale of a walking, talking pudding was born. Needless to say, it was a hit.
Both coins housed in individual presentation cases, set within an illustrated outer sleeve.
