Animalia is a classic Australian children's book, first published in 1986, written and illustrated by Graeme Base. Celebrating its 35th anniversary in 2021, more than three million copies of Animalia have now been sold worldwide.
The book takes children and adults on a colourful journey of the alphabet, using alliteration and detailed animal illustrations to captivate them.
The Royal Australian Mint has partnered with the Children's Book Council of Australia to release this coin, the first of a new series. Launched in the lead up to 2021 Book Week, the coin is a nod to the joy and importance of reading.
