Australia: Kangaroo and Map Stamps

On Monday I got a postcard from Australia.

It shows a sheet of £2 Kangaroo and Map Stamps. The Kangaroo and Map stamp series was the first stamp series issued in Australia to be used in the whole country. It was issued twelve years after the Federation of Australia on the 2nd January 1913 and replaced the stamps of the former six separate British self-governing colonies. If you want to know more about these stamps check out this video on YouTube.

The card is a maxicard. The stamp is from a set of five about Australia's favourite stamps and was issued on the 26th June 2009.

The card is prepaid.

Thank You very much Evelyn!
