2013 Perth Mint PNC - Bush Babies - Echidna
The Bush Babies II - Echidna aluminium-bronze dollar coin and a $2.60 Australian stamp were jointly issued by Australia Post and the Perth Mint.
The coin is mounted on a colourful see-both-sides card and housed in a souvenir envelope. The accompanying $2.60 Australia Post stamp is cancelled with a specially prepared Woodlands WA 6018 postmark dated 2 July 2013.
The coin and stamp both feature the echidna. Native to Australia, the echidna is recognised by its spiky coat and rambling walk. The coin's reverse depicts an image capturing the innocence of a baby echidna. As well as the Perth Mint's 'P' mintmark, the design features an Australian insect and delicately frosted representations of Australian bush flowers.
All PNC's remain in excellent condition, with only minor wear.
