2020 Newcastle Stamp and Coin Expo

To all stamp and coin collectors:

This letter is early notification of the Newcastle Philatelic Exhibition, to be held on the long weekend of October 2020. The exhibition opens on Friday 2 October, and the final day is Sunday 4 October 2020.

The exhibition will include:
• Leading stamp, coin and postcard dealers from across Australia, and we hope, some international dealers.
• Displays (exhibits) from collectors across Australia and New Zealand, and possibly Chile.
• The Royal Philatelic Challenge, with competitive displays from the Royal Philatelic Societies of Great Britain, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa, Melbourne and Sydney.
• The Qantas Challenge, commemorating the centenary of Qantas. This display will consist of Qantas memorabilia, especially covers, cinderellas, postcards, and other Qantas collectibles.
• Souvenirs and special products from Australia Post.
• Meetings of some societies. These are not finalised but could include the Cinderella Stamp Club, Polar Philately Society, Thematic Philately Society, and the Postal Stationary Society.
• Displays and lectures from leading philatelists. Last exhibition (May 2018) Michael Drury showed every shade in the kangaroo and KGV series of stamps 1913-36.
