Royal Australian Mint unveils Bluey commemorative coin collection – for real life

Eee, we’re so excited! Everyone’s favourite blue heeler, Bluey, now features on her own set of Dollarbuck coins.

Hitting the shelves tomorrow with a pop of colour and imagination is the Royal Australian Mint’s latest coin collection featuring Bluey, The Heelers, and The Grannies.

Royal Australian Mint CEO Leigh Gordon said the Bluey limited-run program has given the Mint an opportunity to re-engage with the wider Australian community that may have previously bought products such as the Wiggles, Mr. Squiggle or Play School.

“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?”

BBC Studios Director of Brands & Licensing ANZ Kate O’Connor said, “Bluey is set to shine on this new Dollarbucks coin collection, marking the first-ever Bluey coins. These fun and colourful coins encapsulate the playful essence of the beloved TV series, making them a timeless treasure for fans and collectors alike. And be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the hidden long dogs!”

The 2024 Bluey Dollarbucks $1 Coloured Three-Coin Collection are sold in individual coin cards. They are also available as a three-coin set in a bespoke presentation envelope, lovingly designed by Ludo Studio, along with a fun sticker sheet.
