2021 $2 Australia's Firefighters Coin & Stamp Cover PNC.
This postal numismatic cover pays tribute to the nation's brave firefighters, who battled blazes during the unprecedented Australian bush fire season of 2019-2020.
Exceptionally dry conditions, exacerbated by climate change, led to hundreds of fires, mainly in the eastern part of the continent.
The catastrophic fires burned more than 17 million hectares, destroyed more than 3,000 houses, leaving many people homeless and killed 34 people, including nine firefighters.
Around three billion animals were killed or displaced, with some species likely driven to extinction. For several days in December, thick, hazardous smoke haze blanketed Canberra and greater Sydney, and entire towns were evacuated.
Without Australia's fire services, it is doubtless that more lives and property would have been lost to these disastrous fires.
Issued as Australian legal tender, the uncirculated aluminium bronze coin is housed in a beautifully designed card with a circular window revealing the coin's reverse and obverse designs.
The coin's reverse features a coloured flame, printed over a firefighter scene.
The envelope is post marked First Date of Issue 6th April 2021, Canberra ACT 2601.
The coin's obverse features the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2020 year-date and the monetary denomination.
