For decades, Australian children have marked the occasion of losing a
baby tooth by leaving the tooth out at night for the ‘Tooth Fairy’ to
collect and replace with a coin. This Tooth Fairy Coin-In Card makes the
occasion extra special for children with this unique coin.
The legend of the Tooth Fairy has been treasured by Australian children
since the 1920s, based on centuries-old traditions of replacing baby teeth
with a gift. In modern times parents and grandparents often enhance the
sense of magic with special keepsakes.
This Tooth Fairy Coin-in-Card celebrates the special relationship between
the Tooth Fairy and the Royal Australian Mint, official supplier of coins to
the Tooth Fairy in Australia. The Coin is intended as a special gift from
parents, grandparents and others to children – to mark the occasion of
losing baby teeth with a special keepsake Tooth Fairy coin.
