Beijing Olympic Games - Australian Gold Medalists

Australia
Australia Post will again produce a sheetlet of Gold Medallists stamps in minimal time to celebrate each gold medal performance by an Australian athlete or team at this year's Beijing Olympic Games.

To continue the pace set for Sydney and Athens, and to add to your Gold Medallists collection, sheetlets are prepared using templates ready for insertion of the winner's photo, name, and event. Gold Medallists sheetlets could be available in some of the participating outlets within 24 hours of a medal ceremony!

Associated products

The Beijing Collection will provide collectors with a full set of the Gold Medallists sheetlets along with all of the gummed stamps issued to celebrate this year's Beijing Olympic Games. In addition, collectors will receive a pair from each of the limited digital sheetlets printed onsite in Beijing.

Sets of Australian Gold Medallists sheetlets will be available for collectors. In addition, 6,000 digital sheetlet sets (printed in Beijing) will be made available for sale as full sets to collectors in China and in Australia. A number of the digitally printed sheetlet sets will be used in The Beijing Collection.
