Product Description

It's hard to believe it's been 100 years since children's literature sensations Snugglepot & Cuddlepie and The Magic Pudding were first published. In honour of their centenary, the RAM has released this beautiful pair of coloured $1 coins. Each bears a full-colour motif inspired by the story's original illustrations, underpinned by a Frosted Uncirculated finish.

May Gibbs had a passion for the Australian bush. It was this passion - and her strong environmental message - that made Tales of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie such a memorable hit. The story of two Gumnut brothers evading danger on their quest to find a human, Snugglepot and Cuddlepie has not been out of print in the hundred years since first published.

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.

Each coin has been strictly limited to a mintage of just 30,000 - making it an exclusive acquisition. Both arrive housed in individual presentation cases, set within an illustrated outer sleeve.
