Dear Collectors

Welcome to our fi rst edition

of the Australian Stamp

Bulletin for 2012 after a very

busy close to the previous

year. I’m sure you all made

the most of the Christmas

break, as I did.

Before we take a closer look

at the fi rst stamp issues for

the year I would like to revisit

November 2011 and the

release of the ANZUS stamp

issue. This commemorative

stamp was produced to

recognise the very signifi cant

visit to Australia by the

Honourable Barack Obama,

President of the United

States of America.

An offi cial state visit by the

President had been planned

for some time but was

cancelled on two previous

occasions due to issues of

state. The uncertainty made

plans to commemorate

the visit extremely diffi cult

given the print timelines of

both the Bulletin, and more

importantly, the 2011 Annual

Collection of Australian

Stamps.

The decision for the visit

to occur in mid-November

was to affect the timing of

both publications, which

had already been printed.

Philatelic would release

the commemorative stamp

issue without having a

sample included in the

Annual Collection but this

historic event was too

important and needed to

be recognised offi cially. The

stamp will be included with

the 2012 Annual Collection of

Australian Stamps.

Looking ahead to the coming

stamp issues there is quite a

variety of themes, including

our 2012 Lunar New Year

stamp issue. We anticipate

a high level of interest in

the stamps this year as we

celebrate the Year of the

Dragon. This year’s Australian

Legends stamp issue will

celebrate the achievements

of sporting heroes from the

different football codes in

Australia. What collectors

won’t know until the issue

is released in January is the

identity of those selected for

this honour.

Capital City Transport,

Farming, Technology – Then

and Now and a range of

new stamp designs for use

with social mail in Precious

Moments offers a diverse

range of subjects and

design styles. There’s really

something for everyone.

We also bring you the results

of the Stamp Poll from 2011

and the opportunity to settle

those debates that I’m sure

collectors just love to have

regarding the favourite

stamp and stamp issue of

the year. The poll covered the

gummed stamps featured in

our voting entry form and the

online entry page.

Happy Collecting

Michael Zsolt

Lunar New Year - Year of the Dragon

60c Illustrative dragon $1.80 Chinese symbol for Dragon

1713232 IPPE

The stamps show the development of the Chinese character

for the Dragon, shown fully in the $1.80 stamp, and the way it

is derived from its pictorial representation, shown in the 60c

stamp. Paper cut motifs are used to represent the Dragon in

the 60c stamp. Paper cuts are one of the most popular forms

of Chinese art and are commonly used to decorate windows,

lanterns, mirrors, gates and walls during the Chinese New

Year celebrations. The Dragon occupies a special place in the

Chinese zodiac, being the only mythical creature among them.

This is the perfect keepsake for babies

born in the Year of the Dragon.

· Lets you record baby’s details.

· Complete with uncirculated coin.

The miniature sheet tells the story (in Chinese and English)

about the helpful, soft-hearted Dragon who, although expected

to win the race because he could fl y, only came fi fth because

he stopped during the race to create rain to break a severe

drought and then aided the rabbit, a fellow competitor, by

gently blowing him across the river on a raft. There is a special

gold foil overprinting on the stamps, minisheet and zodiac

sheetlet.

First day cover (gummed)

This stamp issue was released late in the 2011 program to

commemorate the State Visit to Australia of the Honourable

Barack Obama, President of the United States of America.

During his visit from 16–17 November, President Obama

visited Canberra, where he addressed Parliament, and

became the fi rst sitting US President to visit Darwin. This

fi nal gummed stamp in the Australian program was not

included in the November edition of the Stamp Bulletin or

the 2011 Annual Collection of Australian Stamps due to the

time restraints in the production of both publications and

the late notice of the announcement of the State Visit.

Australia and the United States enjoy a strong partnership

in many areas including trade and investment, science and

technology collaboration and security cooperation. This

year marks the 60th anniversary of the Australia-United

States Alliance under the ANZUS Treaty, which was signed

by Australia, New Zealand and the United States in San

Francisco in 1951 and entered into force in 1952.

The stamp shows the military representatives of the ANZUS

countries gathered in Honolulu for the fi rst meeting in 1952:

Lieutenant-General SF (Sydney) Rowell (left), Australian

Chief of General Staff, is greeted on his arrival at the airfi eld

by Admiral Arthur Radford, US Commander in Chief Pacifi c

(right), and Major-General Gentry, New Zealand Chief of

General Staff.

Issue highlights

This issue features a very different

layout in the minisheet design.

There’s also a design in the gutter.

The technological revolution of the 21st century has touched

the daily lives of most Australians. Mobile phones have

revolutionised our daily communication. Unlike fi xed-line

phones, today’s 4G phones can provide a myriad of functions

including internet, video and audio, enabling us to be

connected globally.

The modern refrigerator can be equipped with entertainment

devices such as a high-defi nition LCD screen and FM radio.

This is a far cry from the ice chest which kept food cool,

through insulation rather than electricity, and relied on the ice

man for deliveries of ice.

Public television was introduced to Australia for the 1956

Olympic Games. Early units were relatively small and

1716220 Maxicard set of five

transmitted in black and white for limited periods. Today‘s

fl at-screen television sets are much thinner but have

enormous screens compared to early units, and increasingly,

transmissions are digital rather than analogue.

It is now common to have several TV sets per household and

transmission is 24 hours a day.

Not so long ago listening to music involved placing a vinyl

record on a turntable. Now digital media players are portable,

compact and have a huge storage capacity. Printed road maps

and street directories are becoming a thing of the past since

the introduction of global positioning systems (GPS).

Transport is a favourite philatelic thematic. It is also an integral

part of urban infrastructure. Various forms of transport have

evolved in Australia’s cities.

60c The O-Bahn Bus system in Adelaide – The O-Bahn Bus

system in Adelaide, the city of churches, is among the longest

busways in the world, travelling along a dedicated, concrete,

guided track.

60c Ferries in Sydney – Ferries are at the heart of Sydney’s

transport system, tracing their roots back to the arrival of

the First Fleet at Sydney Cove in 1788. They carry more than

14 million customers annually across one of the world’s most

stunning harbours, passing notable landmarks such as Luna

Park.

60c Trains in Perth – Transperth operates a Free Transit Zone

on public transport within the Perth CBD and includes its

trains, which are notable for running alongside the freeways.

60c Trams in Melbourne – Melbourne is home to the largest

tram network in the world and trams form a distinctive part of

the city’s character. The W-class tram is one of the most loved

and recognised trams in the system.

60c Double-decker trains in Sydney – For over 150 years, the

CityRail network has played a critical role in the provision of

transport services for Sydney which is noted for its doubledecker

trains, some of which cross the iconic Sydney Harbour

Bridge.
