Festival of lights
This beautifully designed and illustrated postal numismatic cover is an affordable collectable to mark the annual Hindu 'festival of lights' Diwali.
The reverse of the coin features a coloured representation of Lakshmi sitting on a lotus flower, a traditional symbol of enlightenment and purity, against a decorated panel. The goddess holds lotus flowers and is dropping coins from one of her four palms into a bowl at her feet. Also included in the design is a background pattern of flowers, the inscription ‘happy diwali’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
Official commemorative postal numismatic cover
The coin is housed in a brightly coloured card and envelope featuring stylised depictions of oil lamps, known as diyas, which are traditionally lit during Diwali. The envelope is affixed with an official celebratory Australia Post $1 stamp and a Happy Diwali stamp portraying Lakshmi. The postal numismatic cover incorporates with a themed postmark for the first date of issue, 23 July 2019, and wishes ‘shubh dipavali’ or happy diwali.
