2022 Newcastle Stamp and Coin Expo

To all stamp and coin collectors:

This letter is early notification of the Newcastle Philatelic Exhibition, to be held in May 2022. The exhibition opens on Friday 27 May, and the final day is Sunday 29 May 2022.

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.
  • The Australasian picture postcard challenge – exhibits for most Australian states and New Zealand.
  • 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.
