To celebrate 100 years of Lions Clubs International, Australia Post will release a special commemorative stamp on June 7 2017.
Australia Post Philatelic Manager Michael Zsolt said: “Many Australians will be familiar with the vital community work of Lions Clubs International, so they will find it fitting that we recognise the organisation’s centenary with a stamp.”
Lions Australia Executive Officer Rob Oerlemans said: “We are delighted Australia Post is celebrating our centenary with a commemorative stamp issue. For 100 years Lions has been driven by its core belief that the community is what we make it and Lions Australia’s Community 100 program celebrates this.”
The domestic base-rate ($1) stamp was designed by Hobart-based designer Lynda Warner. The products associated with this stamp issue are a first day cover, sheetlet pack, maxicard, booklet of 20 x $1 self-adhesive stamps and a limited-edition (3,500) medallion cover.
The stamp issue is available from participating Post Offices, via mail order on 1800 331 794 and online at auspost.com.au/stamps from 7 June 2017 while stocks last.
