The Royal Australian Mint is set to release a brand-new series of coins tomorrow, featuring none other than Australia’s favourite heeler, Bluey! But hurry, they’re going to sell fast!

Bluey, the charming little pup who has captured the hearts of kids and parents around the globe, is now going to be immortalised on our beloved Dollarbucks. Whether you’re a numismatist (a fancy word for coin collector) or just a die-hard Bluey fan, this is something you won’t want to miss.

What’s the Scoop on these Bluey Dollarbucks?

Starting tomorrow, you’ll be able to get your hands on these special edition Bluey-themed dollar coins. The Royal Australian Mint has gone all out, crafting a delightful series of coins that celebrate the beloved animated series. The first batch includes designs featuring Bluey, Bingo, and their playful adventures.

While these $1 coins are actually legal tender, let’s be honest, who would want to part with such adorable keepsakes?

There are three individual coins up for grabs, together with a collector’s triple pack.

The Dollarbucks will be available for sale as individual coin cards or in a three-coin set with a sticker sheet.

The coins will be available in a variety of packaging options, from single coins to complete sets, each more delightful than the last.

Each coin will feature intricate designs that capture the spirit of the show.

The artistry and attention to detail will make these coins a standout addition to any collection.

How to Get Your Paws on Them

The coins will hit shelves tomorrow at the temporary mint coin shop and will also be available from some licensed distributors.

If you can’t make it in person, don’t despair! The Royal Australian Mint is releasing a large number of these coins online via an online ballot, and registration is for 24 hours only! So jump on over to the Royal Australian Mint website and get your name in the mix, and hopefully, they’ll contact you to tell you that you’ve been successful!

You’ll want to act fast, though. With the massive fan base that Bluey commands, these coins are sure to sell out quicker than you can say, “Wackadoo!”

Fun for the Whole Family

Collecting these Bluey coins can be a fun family activity. Imagine the joy of unwrapping a coin set featuring your favourite characters or the thrill of finding the rarest coin in the collection. It’s a great way to introduce kids to the world of numismatics and spark their interest in collecting.

Royal Australian Mint CEO Leigh Gordon said the Bluey limited-run program was an opportunity for young Australians to get involved in coin collecting, just like they did with the previous issues from The Wiggles, Mr Squiggle, or Playschool.

“This is the mint’s classic storytelling and social culture commentary through coins,” Mr Gordon said.

“We hope that through this new Bluey program we are cultivating the coin collector of tomorrow. 

“What better way to start your child’s or grandchild’s coin collection, than with a Bluey coin?”

Bluey’s Big Impact

The release of these coins is more than just a nod to a popular TV show – it’s a recognition of Bluey’s significant impact on Australian culture. The series has been praised for its positive representation of family life, its educational value, and its ability to tackle complex themes in a way that’s accessible to young children.

Bluey has also become a symbol of Australian creativity and storytelling, showcasing the unique humour and warmth that define our country’s entertainment industry. By featuring Bluey on our coins, we’re celebrating not just a beloved character but also the spirit of Aussie ingenuity and imagination.

A New Chapter in Bluey’s Story

As Bluey fans, we’ve watched this lovable pup grow from a simple TV character into a global phenomenon. The release of Bluey-themed Dollarbucks marks a new chapter in Bluey’s story, one that we can all be a part of. These coins are more than just currency – they’re a piece of Bluey’s history that we can cherish and pass down for generations to come.

So, get ready to join the excitement and start your own Bluey coin collection. It’s time to let the adventures continue, one coin at a time. Wackadoo!
