Sporting Legends Issue released 12 October

This issue seemed to escape the attention of many (it was only advertised on the front page of Stamp Bulletin No 318).

Olympian Susie O'Neill appears on Australia Post's new Sporting Legends stamps (released 12 October 2012). The issue is part of Australia Post’s Australian Legends program, and is created in partnership with the Sport Australia Hall of Fame. The aim of the issue is to honour an outstanding Australian athlete who has made a significant contribution to our sporting culture.

Jo Muré designed the two 60c gummed stamps, which were issued in sheetlets of 10 (no self-adhesives were issued). McKellar Renown printed the stamps. It is not yet known if this will be an annual issue or not.
