A brief annotation
Animalia is a classic Australian children's book, written and illustrated by Graeme Base. Celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2021, the much-loved book has now been captured on a Gold-Plated Coloured 20 cent coin, packaged in the cover of a deluxe edition of Animalia. This is the first release in a new series that will celebrate a different classic Australian children’s book each year.

The Royal Australian Mint has partnered with the Children's Book Council of Australia to release this coin in the lead up to 2021 Book Week, the coin is a nod to the joy and importance of reading.
