The Penny Mint acknowledges the land on which we work, perform and reside: on Boonwurrung, Woiwurrung and Wathaurung Country. We extend our deepest gratitude to the elders and ancestors who have told their stories and sung their songs on this land for more than 60,000 years. We acknowledge that this land was never ceded, and no treaty has ever been reached. This always was, always will be Aboriginal land.

Eiddwen Jeffery is a writer from the eastern suburbs, and can be seen on The Penny Mint co-authoring the Tidbit series. In her own words, "I put words on paper hoping that if I arrange them in new orders they may create something spectacular. I have a soft spot for political satire and Australia's greatest News commentary show The Roast, which was untimely cut from the ABC budget.  I like bees and everything green."
