Big Golden Book - Australia

Another interesting foreign edition of the Big Golden Book, this time from Australia. At first glance (and a quick one at that) this also looks like an early US edition, except for one thing.

The 'gold' highlights on this cover are not really gold, or rather they are not an applied metallic highlight. On the US (and Dutch) editions the highlights are actually metallic gold, but here on this Australian edition, they are merely gold colored, they are not metallic but just a golden color, like a goldenrod color, and part of the printed paper cover, not applied. Except for that one very odd difference, the rest of the book is identical to the first printing of the US edition, down to the A100100 on the inside front cover. Published by Golden Press Sydney.
