Australia’s favourite dog is immortalised on the country’s dollar coins, thanks to the Royal Australian Mint.

First, they replicated her house, then they transformed Bunnings into Hammerbarn, and now the Royal Australian Mint has produced three limited edition coins featuring Bluey and her family. Yes, they’re even called “dollar buck” and technically, they are legal tender.

The 2024 Bluey Dollarbucks $1 coloured three-coin collection are sold in individual coin cards. They are also available as a three-coin set in a bespoke presentation envelope, designed by Ludo Studio, along with a fun sticker sheet. The coins feature colour images of Bluey, the Heeler family, and Bluey and Bingo dressed as Grannies.

Owning your own dollar bucks

Sadly, it may be difficult to get your hands on these Bluey dollar bucks. The coins are only available one of four ways, most of which have expired. Your best chances would be from one of the Australian Mint’s authorised dealers or calling the mint contact centre on 1300 652 020. Australia Post will not stock the Bluey products.

The other two ways were:

  • By ballot, only opened between June 5 and 6.
  • Through the temporary mint coin shop at the Canberra Museum and Gallery, on June 6.

“This is the Mint’s classic storytelling and social culture commentary through coins,” said Royal Australian Mint CEO Leigh Gordon. “We hope that through this new Bluey program we are cultivating the coin collector of tomorrow. What better way to start your child’s or grandchild’s coin collection than with a Bluey coin?”

According to BBC Studios director of brands and licensing ANZ, Kate O’Connor, “Bluey is set to shine on this new Dollarbucks coin collection, marking the first-ever Bluey coins. These fun and colourful coins encapsulate the playful essence of the beloved TV series, making them a timeless treasure for fans and collectors alike. And be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the hidden long dogs!”

Good luck getting your hands on a piece of Bluey memorabilia!
