Commemorative coins to mark 60 years of Mr. Squiggle

Iconic ABC series Mr. Squiggle is being celebrated with commemorative coins from the Royal Australian Mint ahead of his 60th birthday.

Mr. Squiggle will feature on $2 coins available from the Mint’s website, along with Blackboard, Bill Steam Shovel, Gus the Snail. $1 coins and a 1c piece have also been released.

Rebecca Hetherington, daughter of creator Norman Hetherington, told ABC, “He would be really thrilled, but he would also be very shy and humbled about it…but very excited.”

Mr Squiggle turns 60 in July.
