|Bi Metalic Coin|
The Perth Mint has created an Australian $1 coin for exclusive inclusion in Australia Post’s Centenary of Powered Flight Stamp and Coin Cover.
The $1 coin is struck from aluminium bronze in uncirculated quality.
The coin’s reverse portrays a representation of famous escapologist Harry Houdini’s Voisin bi-plane, which he flew successfully at Diggers Rest, near Melbourne, 100 years ago in March. As well as The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, the design incorporates the inscription AUSTRALIAN CENTENARY OF FLIGHT DIGGERS REST 18th MARCH 1910.
Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the $1 coin depicts the Ian Rank-Bradley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2010 year-date on the obverse.
The coin is housed in an illustrated envelope bearing a commemorative $2.10 Australia Post stamp depicting Houdini’s aircraft.
The stamp is cancelled with a special postmark containing the words FIRST DAY OF ISSUE 9 MARCH 2010 DIGGERS REST VICTORIA 3427.
Each Stamp and Coin Cover features Australia Post’s numbered seal of authenticity.
