2018 Rascals & Ratbags - 4 coin Mintmark & Privy mark set
Australia’s convicts were a mixed bunch, but their stories have helped to create contemporary Australia.
Among the very first convicts was Mary Wade, who at age 11 had been sentenced to death, until a quirk of fate changed her sentence to transportation. Mary went on to have 21 children, and nowadays tens of thousands of Australians are descended from her, including former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd.
These coins recognise the influence of convicts, such as Mary, whose stories have shaped Australia as a nation; and their descendants, many of whom are proud of their resilient ancestors.
G’day Brock, the order has just arrived (12.30 tues 27). Aust Post had a bit of a whoopsy, but finally managed delivery.
Packaging was brilliant (almost overkill) and the order was complete and in the condition I expected. Thanks and I hope I can use your service in the future.
