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 coin, Stamp and Coin Covers have become extremely popular among collectors and gift buyers.
