The Perth Mint has celebrated the graceful horse with a stunning Stamp and Coin Cover, which makes for a great collectable.
The coin and stamp envelopes are becoming a highly popular and much sought after release and they always sell out very quickly. If you missed out then here is your chance.
The 60 cent and $1.80 stamps as issued by Australia Post for this release adorn the envelope and are postmarked for the first day of issue. Australia Post’s Seal of Authenticity and official number are also stamped on the envelope.
The coin comes displayed in a stunning design card which includes information on the horse zodiac. A circular window allows the viewing of both the coin’s reverse and obverse designs.
The Year of the Horse collectable coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965 and features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination on its obverse.
