The Perth Mint and Australia Post have released this stunning stamp and coin cover celebrating Diwali.

2017 Happy Diwali $1 PNC

Diwali is an ancient five day Hindu 'festival of lights'. Celebrated by millions of Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, and some Buddhists around the world, it is considered one of the happiest holidays in India and Nepal. The main theme of the festival is the triumph of light over darkness, goodness over evil, knowledge over ignorance, and hope over despair.

The reverse of the coin features a coloured representation of Lakshmi sitting on a lotus flower with gold coins pouring out of her hands, symbolising material and spiritual wealth. The design includes the inscription 'happy diwali' and The Perth Mint's traditional 'P' Mintmark.

The coin's obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2017 year-date and the monetary denomination.

Issued as Tuvalu tender, this uncirculated aluminium bronze coin is housed in a beautifully designed card featuring photographic images.

The card includes a circular window revealing the obverse and reverse of the medallion.

Affixed to the envelope is an official Australia Post $1.00 stamp, postmarked First Day of Issue along with Australia Post's Seal of Authenticity.

Postmarked First Day of Issue 17 October 2017 - Melbourne VIC 3000
