Australian Bush Babies II coin series – Possum
Posted 7 years ago and submitted by Elise Martinson | Share link:


The next coin in the second series of Australian Bush Babies coins has been released! This coin features an Australian common brushtail possum surrounded by Australian flora and little honey bee friend. The coin is struck in 1/2oz of pure silver and is an Australian Legal Tender coin. I have had the pleasure of illustrating and designing these coins since the beginning of the series which launched in 2010.

The second series features the following baby animals: kookaburra, possum, echidna, platypus and wombat.

Please see the blog post linked below for more information.

We chose to use Elise as an artist for our labels because of the care and attention to detail that she puts into every piece of artwork. We found Elise easy to work with and prompt with changes and feed back regarding the artwork in progress.  We loved how she was able to bring the label ideas to life and add the finishing touches that make an ordinary label extraordinary. Our experience with her was very professional and we would defiantly recommend Elise to another business or individual.
