The Perth Mint and Australia Post are delighted to present an Australian Kingfisher stamp and coin cover featuring the Yellow-billed Kingfisher.
Yellow-billed Kingfishers are medium-sized forest birds which have a very distinctive yellow coloration that gives them their name.
Unique Coloured Reverse Design
The coin’s reverse depicts an irresistible image of a Yellow-billed Kingfisher perched on a branch. The design also features the inscription YELLOW-BILLED KINGFISHER SYMA TOROTORO and the $1 monetary denomination.
Tuvalu Legal Tender Coin
Issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu, the obverse of the coin depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2013 year-date and the monetary denomination.
Official Australia Post Stamp
Affixed to the envelope is an official Australia Post $3.00 stamp. The stamp is postmarked for the first day of issue and the envelope includes Australia Post’s Seal of Authenticity and official release number.
Beautifully Designed Presentation Envelope
This uncirculated aluminium bronze coin is housed in a beautifully designed card that fits inside a similarly illustrated envelope with a circular window revealing the coin’s reverse and obverse designs.
