The Australian Territory of Christmas Island, named when it was discovered on Christmas Day 1643, is the inspiration behind this year’s Christmas Stamp & Coin Cover.

The vividly illustrated envelope features the Island’s famous red crabs and a red-necked frigatebird playfully portrayed in Santa hats! The crabs also appear in the shape of a Christmas tree on the Australia Post 65c stamp, suitably stamped with a Christmas Island WA 6798 post-mark.

The finishing touch is an uncirculated Australian $1 coin made by The Perth Mint with an equally vibrant illustration of Santa and his gift sack on a tropical beach.

The perfect memento of an Aussie-style Christmas, just 8,000 of these festive Stamp & Coin Covers will be issued.

This month’s new product bulletin presents outstanding collector coins that are certain to impress.

Pride of place on the bulletin front-cover goes to the new Kimberley Sunset Pink Gold Coin, a stunning release featuring an iconic Argyle pink diamond. It’s no exaggeration to say that this coin is a masterpiece!

We know that many of you have been anxiously awaiting the next release from our popular Australia Map Shaped Coin Series. Hopefully the wait has been worth it, for this superb new addition celebrates Australia’s largest bird of prey – the magnificent Wedge-tailed Eagle.

As the nation prepares to commemorate the landing of troops from Australia and New Zealand on the Gallipoli peninsula in 1915, two more very limited releases are available from the five-year ANZAC Spirit Coin Series, both poignantly reflecting sacrifice and remembrance.

Additionally, we’ve created a special 100th anniversary edition of our ANZAC Day $1 Coin Series, appropriately inscribed with the words ‘Lest We Forget’.
