Australian Bush Babies II - Possum 2013 Stamp and Coin Cover

  • Adorable Reverse Design
  • Australian Legal Tender
  • Official Australia Post Stamp
  • Beautifully Designed Presentation Envelope

The Perth Mint and Australia Post together present the second release in this adorable series featuring iconic baby animals.

The coin and stamp both feature the brush-tailed possum.  One of Australia's most familiar marsupials, this lively animal is the size of a domestic cat with a pointed face, long oval ears, a pink nose and a bushy black tail.

This wonderful stamp and coin cover series features iconic baby animals gloriously illustrated by designer Elise Martinson. This series follows the same designs featured on the Australian Bush Babies II 1/2oz silver proof coins released by The Perth Mint in 2012 and 2013.

Others in the Series:

2011 Australian Bush Babies Series I: Kangaroo, Koala, Bilby, Dingo, Sugar Glider

2013 Australian Bush Babies Series II: Kookaburra, (Possum), Echidna, Wombat, Platypus

Adorable Reverse Design

The coin’s reverse depicts an irresistible image of a baby possum. As well as The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, the design features a friendly Australian insect and delicately frosted representations of Australian bush flowers.

Australian Legal Tender

Issued as Australian legal tender, the coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the year-date and the monetary denomination.

Official Australia Post Stamp

Affixed to the envelope is an official Australia Post $6.45 stamp.  The stamp is postmarked with the first day of issue.  

Beautifully Designed Presentation Envelope

This uncirculated aluminium bronze coin is housed in a beautifully designed card that fits inside a similarly illustrated envelope with a circular window revealing the coin’s reverse and obverse designs.  The envelope also includes Australia Post’s Seal of Authenticity and official number.
