Celebrating 22 years of Australian legends
Every year, Australia Post announce the Legends Award, a stamp series commemorating living Australians who have made lifetime contributions to the development of the our national identity and character.
The Legends Award criteria honours 'inspirational' living Australians who exemplify tenacity, imagination, perseverance, devotion, integrity and compassion.
The Legends Award was initiated in 1997 when Sir Donald Bradman was the first living Australian to be honoured on an Australian stamp. Prior to that, the only living people honoured on our nation's stamps were members of the royal family.
Each Legend will feature on a $1 stamp, with all Legends featuring in a stamp pack, a set of maxi cards and booklet of 10 stamps for collectors.
