Young Collectors 2010 Australian Backyard Bugs Coi

There’s a distinct buzz of excitement surrounding the third annual Young Collectors coin set from The Perth Mint. This year the focus is on backyards bugs with a stunning array of shiny new dollar coins in awesome presentation packaging which also features a bonus magnifying glass. The 2010 Young Collectors 1 coins depict nine insects commonly found in Australian backyards from a beautiful butterfly to a bothersome blowfly! Each coin, which also incorporates The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark in its reverse design, is struck from aluminium bronze. Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, each coin portrays the Ian Rank Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2010 year date on the obverse. The coins are housed in a spectacular presentation album and protective slip case. The album’s internal spread depicts an insect eye view of a backyard that cleverly draws the viewer’s eye deep into the colour illustration to discover all nine featured bugs. Incorporating a Certificate of Authenticity, the Information Booklet explores the amazing world of bugs. What exactly is a bug How do they grow What benefit are they Answering a myriad of questions like these, the illustrated Booklet has hints on how to collect bugs and includes a word from Dr Beth Mantle, an insect expert at the CSIRO, who describes her childhood passion for creepy crawlies. Perfect for examining tiny bugs and coin designs, a magnifying glass is also integrated into the package. There’s yet more fun to be had with colourful bug stickers and a wonderful double sided poster. One side portrays a collection of bugs while the reverse showcases one of the prettiest and most beneficial of all insects a ladybird. The 2010 Australian Backyard Bugs 1 Coin Set is the ideal gift idea for parents and grandparents keen to encourage their youngsters to get into coins!
