The Perth Mint and Australia Post have released this stamp and coin cover which features a colourful Christmas coin.
Christmas is a time for festive gatherings with family and friends, and for decorating our homes with Christmas trees, large or small.
In the case of individuals kept apart by distance, it is an opportunity to connect in other ways, including sending greeting cards through the mail. For children, and also perhaps for those young at heart, letters are sent to Santa at this time of year, in the hope that upon making in onto the “nice” list exciting presents will arrive on Christmas Day!
Issued as Tuvalu legal tender, the uncirculated aluminium bronze coin is housed in a beautifully designed card with a circular window revealing the coin’s reverse and obverse designs.
The coin portrays an imaginary scene featuring a red letterbox with Santa’s initials and Christmas post. Including stylised impressions of snow, Australian wattle, and fairy lights
