Australia’s first legal tender Stamp-shaped Coin (“Stamp-Coin”) is issued with Australia Post’s 2008 Stamp release celebrating the Beijing Olympics. It is a copy of the 2008 Beijing Olympics 50c commemorative stamp designed by Lynda Warner.
The number 8 is auspicious for the Chinese, so the Stamp-Coin is appropriately limited to a lucky number - 8000.
The Stamp-Coin and matching Stamp are in a boxed presentation folder that forms a triangle desk display.
Issued by Perth Mint.
