Extremely upsetting news that thieves have stolen one of the Gumnut Baby sculptures from Stirling Gardens in the centre of Perth.

The theme of our Snugglepot & Cuddlepie™ 2015 1/2oz Silver Proof Coin, the characters are the much-loved creation of Australian author and artist May Gibbs, who published her first book about the pair’s adventures in 1918. The sculptures are by Claire Bailey and date from 2001.

Hopefully it won’t be too long before the missing Baby is returned and the statue repaired for all to enjoy once again.
