Product Information

 

The Perth Mint and Australia Post are pleased to celebrate the Chinese New Year with a stunning Stamp and Coin Cover.

Chinese New Year, also called Spring Festival, has more than 4,000 years of history. Being one of the traditional Chinese festivals, it is the grandest and the most important festival for Chinese people.

Chinese New Year Themed Design

The reverse of the coin depicts a dragon, with the Chinese characters for ‘happy new year’ and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark also appearing in the design. The stamps depict a stylised monkey image and the Chinese character for ‘monkey’.

Tuvalu Legal Tender

The uncirculated aluminium bronze coin is issued as legal tender under the Government of Tuvalu and features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2016 year-date, and the monetary denomination on the coin’s obverse.

Official Australia Post Stamps and Presentation Envelope

Each coin is housed in a beautifully designed card featuring a dragon in vivid colour with a circular window revealing the coin’s reverse and obverse designs. Affixed to the envelope are two official Australia Post $1 and $3 stamps.  The stamps are postmarked for the first day of issue and the envelope includes Australia Post’s Seal of Authenticity and official number. The stamps depict a stylised monkey image and the Chinese character for ‘monkey’.
