2021 $1 Centenary Of Ginger Meggs Coloured Silver Two Coin Set

A century ago, artist and illustrator Jimmy Bancks introduced Australia to an enduring character - Ginger Meggs, the larrikin schoolboy with the shock of red hair.

Created by illustrator Jimmy Bancks in 1921, Ginger Meggs has featured in newspaper comic strips in Australia and around the world ever since. There has even been a movie and a stage musical, books and songs such as Just a Little Ginger Headed Feller from 1938.

Product Code

Ginger Meggs and his gang experienced the highs and lows of Australia - sporting success, the depression, the Second World War and most recently, the Coronavirus, all with irreverent good humour.

Following Jimmy Bancks’ death in 1952, Ginger Meggs has been produced by a succession of talented illustrators - Ron Vivian (1953-1973), Lloyd Piper (1973-1982), James Kemsley (1983-2007) and by Jason Chatfield since 2007.
