Beautifully illustrated on this limited Australia Post collectable, Banksia is an iconic Australian native plant with cylindrical flower heads that resemble the shape of a candle – a motif strongly associated with Christmas.
The stamp and coin cover also incorporates an Australian coin featuring the inscription MERRY CHRISTMAS. The words are surrounded by a colourful garland of native flowers in a design that includes The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
Themed Envelope with Christmas Stamps
The superbly illustrated envelope features Banksia ‘candles’ amid fir tree branches, decorative baubles and gift-wrapped boxes to evoke the sense of an Australian Christmas. It includes two official 65-cent stamps portraying Christmas motifs, a special postal stamp marked MERRYLANDS NSW 2160 and Australia Post’s Seal of Authenticity.
