Renowned cartoonist Michael Leunig is undoubtedly one of Australia’s endearing favorites. He is one of the very few Australians to be honored with the “National Trust Living Treasure” accolade in 1999. Celebrating Leunig’s fantastic power of capturing the essences of humanity, peace, love and hope, this envelope is one of five in a series honoring his foresight and uniquely Australian passion. Australian Post Office began in 1970 to produce first day covers featuring distinctive designs for each new stamp issue and with the stamps cancelled by special ‘first day of issue’ postmarks. These official first day covers form a sizeable and very attractive collection for Australian stamp collectors. First day covers are reasonably common however not so with this offer. These official ANDA release First Day Covers are now becoming very scarce indeed. A philatelic delight from the Leunig Collectible Stamps issue.
