This set is designed specifically to be given as a gift upon the birth of a child. The set consists of five of Australia's six circulating coins plus a special Ethel C Pedley Dollar:
- Five Cents
- Ten Cents
- Platypus Twenty Cents
- Fifty Cents
- Ethel C Pedley Dollar and
- Two Dollars
Also included is a pad-printed coloured cupro-nickel Dot & the Kangaroo medallion blank on one side to enable a child's name to be engraved.
The sets were released with the six coins being housed sealed in a fold-out see-both-sides colourful presentation bubble pack and enclosed in a colourful protective cardboard sleeve. Provision is made in the pack for the insertion of a photo and notation of the child's family tree.
Included in this set is a special commemorative uncirculated dollar featuring Ethel C Pedley. The coin is exclusive to the uncirculated set and is not available in any other set nor was it released into general circulation. Mint records indicate that 23 084 sets were issued.
The set is the first issue in a 3-year Dot & the Kangaroo Baby Set series. Few Australian children's stories have stood the test of time like Ethel pedley's Dot & the Kangaroo. First published in 1899 the story of loss nature and friendship has captured the imagination of children and adults for over a century.
Woven through the charming plot are the themes of family and environmental conservation as well as images of native flora and fauna vibrantly reproduced on the inner coin wallet and outer packaging.
