Details

The centenary stamp is based on the original 1d King George V stamp that was first issued on 9 December 1913 in a limited edition intaglio version. The letterpress red 1d version was issued on 17 July 1914 and replaced the 1d Kangaroo and Map stamp.

Measuring 30.50mm x 22.70mm this unusual stamp-shaped coin replicates the original 1d King George V stamp, which features a crown above an effigy of King George V in an oval shape, with a kangaroo and an emu. The red coloured background and the inscriptions AUSTRALIA, POSTAGE and ONE PENNY also feature in the design.

  • The Perth Mint and Australia Post worked together to produce this limited edition stamp-shaped coin, struck from 1/2oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.
  • Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the 50c coin features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2014 year-date, and the monetary denomination on its obverse.
  • The set also includes an official 70 cent centenary stamp, which is based on the original red 1d King George V stamp design that was first issued in a limited edition intaglio version on 9 December 1913. The letterpress red 1d version was issued on 17 July 1914 and replaced the 1d Kangaroo and Map stamp.
