Coin Design Follows Popular Bush Babies Silver Proof Series
Struck by The Perth Mint in uncirculated aluminium bronze, the $1 coin in this delightful Stamp and Coin Cover portrays a cute baby sugar glider atop an impression of native wildflowers. The design also includes the sugar glider’s insect ‘friend’, a dragonfly, and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
Australian Legal Tender
Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin portrays the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2011 year-date on its obverse.
Coloured Sugar Glider Stamp
The coin is housed in a beautifully illustrated envelope featuring an Australia Post $4.70 stamp depicting the sugar glider in colour.
The dragonfly forms part of the stamp’s special postmark.
Australia Post Seal of Authenticity
This charming collectable also features Australia Post’s Seal of Authenticity and its official number.
Beautifully Designed Presentation
Each coin is housed in a charming, specially designed card that fits inside the illustrated envelope with a circular window revealing the coin’s reverse and obverse designs.
The Perth Mint and Australia Post are pleased to present this wonderful stamp and coin cover series, featuring iconic baby animals gloriously illustrated by designer Elise Martinson.
