An Overlooked Impressions Item
There's one item that many collectors will have missed in this year's Impressions catalogue: The Kangaroo & Map and King George V stamp and coin set. I initially overlooked it thinking it was no different to the individual stamp and coin sets released with the original issues in 2013 and 2014. However, closer examination shows the set includes an exclusive miniature sheet.
This set is excellent value for money. Selling for $199, the original stamp and coin sets sold for $89.95 (Kangaroo & Map (limited to 4000, and now sold out)) and $99.95 (limited to 2500). The product went on sale with the vast majority of the other Impressions items on Tuesday.
