  1. To the Perth Mint blog team or anyone else who cares to answer,

    I got curious about this stamp-shaped coin and googled around a bit. I discovered that you did a release for the 2008 Beijing Olympics, a “200 Years of Postal Service” coin in 2009, and a Saint Mary McKillop coin in 2010.

    Is the Beijing 2008 coin the first stamp-shaped coin you’ve produced, and to the best of your knowledge, has any other world mint ever tried doing a stamp-shaped coin before?

    • Hi CO

      Great to hear from you again and thanks for these questions. We just posted a short article about the stamp-shaped coins issued to date which we hope you find useful.

      Best wishes
