Australia 2-DOLLARS (KM-new) Possum

The Australian Mint issued a set of eight "Possum Magic" coins in 2017, three of which were released into circulation.

First published in 1983, the picture book tells the story Grandma Poss and Hush,  who has been turned invisible by Grandma Poss to protect her from danger. The pair then travel around Australia searching for the secret of Hush's visibility by, I think, eating different foods, all while learning about Australia's many animals and landscapes.

On the second coin, Grandma Poss and Hush are near the end of their adventure, with Hush eating a Vegemite sandwich and noticing that her tail has re-appeared.
