Play School has been instrumental in the Australian landscape for children, and the young at heart. This year we see this iconic television show turn 50 years old, and to celebrate we are inviting Play School legend Simon Burke to the Mint to sing-a-long with you!
First airing in 1966, Play School is the longest running children’s television show in Australia and is a favourite amongst many. For the past 50 years this educational program has warmed the hearts of children and adults. Therefore, this anniversary has a place in the hearts of many around our nation.
The Mint has released a special memento for the anniversary with the adorable Play School three coin set featuring the famous toys Jemima, Humpty Dumpty, Big Ted and Little Ted!
Get ready, The Changeover Tour is heading north! With Queensland in our sights, we will be visiting Toowoomba, Bundaberg, Rockhampton, Mackay, Townsville and Cairns to share the decimal currency story.
To make the trip even more special we will be popping up at the Bundaberg Agricultural Show for the entire three days, where the show theme is the 50th anniversary of decimal currency!
