Australian Commonwealth Coinage 1910-2010

The Australia Postal Service will issue two new stamps that have a postage value of 55 cents and $2.75 named "Australian Commonwealth Coinage 1910-2010" on the 23rd of February 2010. These stamps depict the 1910 florin Australian coat of arms on one side of the coin and King Edward VII on the other side. These designs were on the first Australian coin issues granted by King Edward VII in 1908. The kangaroo and emu flank a shield, above which is the Federation star. Despite a revamped coat of arms being produced in 1912, the original version remained on the coins throughout the term of their production. Only two months after the first shipment of florins and shillings coins reached Australia, King Edward VII died. And his image was replaced by his successor George V on the 1911 coins.

"Australian Commonwealth Coinage 1910-2010" stamps can be purchased as a set of 2, Sheets of 50, Gutter (10 x 55 cents), Minisheet or FDC's. The size of each stamp is 26mm x 37.5mm and the size of the minisheet is 106mm x 70mm. Perforation size of these stamps is 13.86mm x 14.6mm using the 2cm reference. They will be printed by Energi Print using the Lithography printing process with special foil and embossed features.
