2013 PNC - World Stamp Expo Kangaroo and Map Day 1 with "Melbourne" Counterstamp Fifty Cent Coin - #0,862 of 7,500
The World Stamp Show was held in the Royal Exhibition Building in Melbourne from 10th to the 15th May 2013.
Australia Post and the Royal Australian Mint are worked together to produce a limited-edition daily PNC (stamp first day cover with a coin as well) for collectors to purchase during the show.
Each day a different coloured foil postmark was applied at the Australia Post stand.
Then you were given a token to collect your coin to make your PNC complete.
Over the 5 days, only 1,250 of these releases were available per day, leading to only a very low mintage 50 cent coin (7,500), but also the first and only to carry a counterstamp.
The day 1 overprint is green, with this PNC being in pristine condition.
It is numbered #0,862 of 7,500.
