Commemorative Stamp and Coin Covers (sometimes referred to as Postal Numismatic Covers) were inspired by the concept of the ‘first day cover’ – a postage stamp on a cover (envelope, postcard or package) franked on the first day of issue. Comprising a themed envelope featuring one or more Australia Post stamps and a specially designed Australian coin, Stamp and Coin Covers have become extremely popular among collectors and gift buyers.
Chinese New Year Design
The coin in this Stamp and Coin Cover portrays a Chinese dragon and lanterns inscribed with the Chinese characters for ‘Happy New Year’. Included in the design is The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark. The coin comes on a beautifully illustrated envelope affixed with official AUD 1.10 and AUD 3.30 stamps featuring a pictorial postmark including the words: First day of issue 8 January 2021 CHRISTMAS ISLAND WA 6798.
