news, latest news,

As far as celebrity clients go, the tooth fairy is pretty good. The Royal Australian Mint – as Australia’s official Tooth Fairy coin supplier – has released its 2022 Tooth Fairy coin. This is the third year the Mint has partnered with the beloved tooth collector, creating a fairy-themed $2 Australian collectible coin for Australian children who will be losing their baby teeth over the next 12 months. . The uncirculated coin comes in a kit, for $25, that includes a bamboo toothbrush, floating glitter fairy pen, tooth chart and a special message from the tooth fairy. As well as featuring the Tooth Fairy – who is depicted on the coin wearing a relatively large tooth from the front door of her pixie house – she is also surrounded by native flora. “It’s a beautiful piece of an Australian fairy with acacia leaves for her wings and a bit of acacia in her hair. And on the edge of the piece you can see Australian ferns and flowers. I think it’s a pretty coin,” says Leigh Gordon, Managing Director of the Royal Australian Mint. “The designer of the coin is the very gifted Canberran, Bronwyn Scott, who came up with a coin that the public would love. “We certainly want to tell the stories of Australia through our coins, so having that Australian slant was important for the coin as well. We want to see a coin that people like.” While some other collectibles would see the Royal Australian Mint consult stakeholders on the design, Gordon says there weren’t many fairies consulted on this particular design as the Tooth Fairy trusted them completely. READ MORE: Since its release last week, the coin has generated a lot of interest, with the Royal Australian Mint’s Facebook post receiving thousands of hits and the online store receiving many enquiries. “We tried to understand why there has been a lot more interest in this play compared to previous years. Maybe it’s starting to get better known or maybe people are expecting more from the play,” Gordon says. The coin is part of the Mint’s effort to get children interested in coins.As well as accommodating school groups throughout mint also has a Mini Minties program which entertains young children with a set of structured activities. Next month’s Minit Minties program even sees a special Tooth Fairy event, where on February 4 kids can create a special mailbox to put their teeth in. But there’s more to the celebrities the Royal Australian Mint has worked with not at the Tooth Fairy. This year the Royal Mint has already worked with another children’s favourite. “We had the first coin of the year, on the first of January. We are the number one mint in the world because of our unique position on the globe to mint the first coin every year,” says Gordon, “This year the coin theme was dinosaurs. And we had Dorothy the Dinosaur as the celebrity who came to mint the first coin of the year.
