The Royal Australian Mint has launched the ‘Animals of the Zoo’ series of collectable $1 coins to coincide with Melbourne Zoo’s 150th birthday! There are six to collect including the Orang-utan, Goodfellow’s Tree Kangaroo, Southern Corroboree Frog, Sumatran Tiger, Asian Elephant and Western Lowland Gorilla. Each coin also features coloured imagery and comes in a beautiful cardboard case.
These coins are available in the Zoo Shop or online at the Royal Australian Mint.
While on the subject of collecting coins, why not gather 300 x 5 cent coins for the Common Cents Challenge! Your donation will help Zoos Victoria fight extinction of the Eastern Barred Bandicoot through the development of a captive breeding and re-introduction program.
