The Royal Australian Mint has unveiled a very special $2 coin to commemorate the moment Aussie kids lose a tooth.

The Royal Australian Mint said it was pleased to release the special coin as the “official supplier” to the Tooth Fairy.

“Losing a tooth is a special occasion for a child, and the Tooth Fairy marks the occasion with a gift,” the Mint said.

“As the official supplier of coins to the Tooth Fairy in Australia, the Mint is proud to offer this adorable keepsake to celebrate this special moment for children all over Australia.”

The special coin comes in the Tooth Fairy box which includes a bamboo toothbrush, a floating glitter fairy pen, a tooth chart and a special message from the Tooth Fairy.

The entire box is valued by the Mint at $25 and can be found on their website.
