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.
Ginger Meggs has featured in comic strips across Australia and throughout the world. Part battler, part larrikin and part philosopher, Ginger Meggs and his gang have experienced the highs and lows of Australia – sporting success, the depression, WWII and most recently, the Coronavirus, all with irreverent good humour.
To celebrate the centenary, the Royal Australian Mint have released this coloured al/bronze 2 coin set featuring Ginger Meggs and the gang in colour.
