The Royal Australian Mint has partnered with the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the organisation's work in Australia.
Founded in London in 1824 and then in Australia in 1871, the organisation works to protect all animals from cruelty.
An independent charity, the organisation relies on community support to run animal rehoming shelters, investigate complaints of animal cruelty and educate the community about responsible pet ownership and animal welfare. The RSPCA promotes the welfare of all animals. In fact, its moniker is "for all creatures, great and small".
This colourful guinea pig coin pays homage to the 150th anniversary of the RSPCA)in Australia. Very cute and with distinct personalities, guinea pigs area popular pet in Australia, with their audible squeaks and whistles effective in drawing their owner's attention (and cuddles!)
