Perth ANDA Show Pre-stamped Counterstamps

January 8, 2012

Visitors to the Perth ANDA show on 3/4 March 2012 will be disappointed not to see the Royal Australian Mint with the portable press this year. The portable press is required for use in Canberra that weekend for Enlighten events so it will not be travelling to this coin show. The RAM will still have Wheat Sheaf $1 P counterstamps available but they will have all been pre-struck in Canberra and taken to the show to be sold.

Last years Perth ANDA saw a similar situation where some counterstamps were pre-struck but this was simply a timing and organisational issue as it was not thought possible to strike the entire allocation within the 2 days of the show. They did take the portable press in 2011 and you could still strike your own counterstamp if you wished.

This is particularly bad timing for the 2012 Perth ANDA as it is a real show attraction to have the thrill of striking your own stamp onto your coin.
