Bush Babies Released: Australian Kangaroo

How exciting, I just read that in June The Perth Mint will be releasing the first coin in the Bush Babies series. The series was designed by yours truly, but not without the feedback and support of the some other great people at the Mint of course! Talisman coins has done a much longer write up on the series here although I would like to correct that I was previously located in Perth and have now relocated to Melbourne.

Below is the the first coin to be released, a red kangaroo joey. There will be a total of five coins in the series and a box is available in which to display them all. You can get some idea of what the other designs will be like from the packaging images available here.

These were a lot of fun to illustrate. I love digital illustration and animals so it was a really enjoyable project for me. I hope people enjoy them as much as I enjoyed creating them.
