I find it difficult to be excited about a stamp issue which features "Nostalgic fruit labels" but clearly it's a subject of importance to Australia Post as it is the cause of the issue of a large number of upcoming philatelic products on 7 June 2016. There will be:-
a basic set of 4 x $1 different gummed stamps (total cost $4):-
A coil strip of 4 x $1 self-adhesive stamps (total cost $4):-
A $10 booklet of 10 x $1 self-adhesive stamps:-
A "Concertina sheetlet pack", cost $42, which contains 4 sheetlets of 10 stamps:-
And for good measure, a $16 26-page "Prestige booklet":-
This all adds up to a rather expensive purchase of fruit - the above collection of products totals $76 (£38.19). Rating:- *
A single $1 stamp was issued on 31 May 2016 to commemorate the centenary of the Returned and Services League. The stamp was issued in gummed format as well as self-adhesive from a $20 booklet and was designed by Janet Boschen and lithographed by McKellar Renown and perforated 14.5 x 14. Total cost of these items:- $21 (£10.56). Rating:- ***.
