Australia was the first stamp issuing country in the world as far as I know to issue large size annual year books. They started back in 1981.

These large A4 (quarto) sized books contain all the Australian and AAT stamps issued in that year, and are placed on sale at year end. Clear Mylar Hawid mounts are already affixed to each page, so the stamps can be quickly and safely inserted, leaving a beautiful and fascinating stamp product.

For collecting modern issue stamps in the Australia climate these are THE best thing you can buy. Dust, humidity, moisture and insects just do NOT get into the stamps I have found in my 25 years of buying and selling these books. If I buy an Estate lot where the early year books are stored along with stockbooks and albums, the stamps in the year books are in perfect condition after 25-30 years, and many of the same issues stored right around them have toning/foxing/rust.

That is by far the most important point. The heavy SLIPCASES each of these comes supplied in, keeps out dust and seems to largely keep out the humidity, that causes foxing.  Year Books for the Australian climate are the perfect way to collect modern stamps

Secondly the presentation of the stamps and the artwork and detail on the pages is an absolute credit to Australia Post. High gloss varnished paper, and double facing pages of info on EVERY stamp issue. Laden with photos and factual background information. For collectors with younger children or Grandchildren this is a goldmine for their education and general knowledge.

The average Australian 12 year old sadly does NOT learn this stuff in school anymore it seems. Most would not have a clue who George Bass, Murray Rose, Alec Campbell, Edmund Barton, Jessie Vasey, Frederick McCubbin, Roden Cutler or Lawrence Hargraves were, or even who the British monarch was when Australia was founded. Sad but true.

The same youngsters have no idea whatever what a Flannel Flower looks like, what year Western Australia was founded, what the 'Cutty Sark' was, where the 1988 Olympics were held, and when the Snowy Mountains Scheme commenced. This is our HISTORY here, and the schools simply do not teach it anymore it seems to me.

The answers to ALL these questions and facts are contained in Year Books.

Youngsters LIKE looking at these books as they are bright and colourful with lots of photographs. They absorb this knowledge like a sponge. Anything that can drag them away from Sega Play Stations, Nintendo games, mobile phone text messaging and internet music downloads is a PLUS.

Folks often buy a set of these books from the birth year or a child or grandchild. They are an easy present to keep up to date with each year.

As far as 'value for money' - you can't beat these - especially at my prices. Remember you are buying MINT STAMPS here - which is like buying cash in a way. Look at my prices - for many of the books you are buying them even now - over 20 years since issue at virtually the PO issue price, like the 1985 book - BEFORE my 27% discount! All the Mint stamps inside are postally valid - so you can use them on letters and parcels if you wish. How can you lose?

And children aside, adults like buying the books, as not only are ALL the stamps in one place so you miss nothing, they are all in good condition, and stay that way. Unlike FDC or packs etc, you do not need to buy expensive albums to house them in. These are fully self-contained and ready to go the moment you buy them.

The year books are compact and easy to store - a full set from 1981 fits neatly in a metre of bookshelf space. Or in a box in the garage or spare bedroom even. As they are in slipcases and plastic outers they are THE easiest stamp product to store where you have space. And if and when you sell them you have a saleable and readily traded entity.

The "Leather" (Executive) books are VERY classy. All have been Black leather with brass corners since first issue in 1986, so they are a fully matched set. Covers are thickly padded and deeply gold inscribed on front and spine. Australia Post charges about $30 more for each one over the regular book, due to high cost of making leather covers, (the stamp contents are identical) and almost NO dealer has stock of older ones at any price from past 5 years.

Many of the books of either type are scarce. The 1988 sold out WAY ahead of time as it was a popular "Bicentennial" gift for the general public to send to friends and relatives overseas. Most stamp collectors missed out, and hence the high price. My price is $A95 before any discounts yet the Seven Seas Stamps colour ASC market leading catalogue lists that book as $A210 retail. My price is well under HALF retail - before any discounts are deducted.

The 2000 year book surprised everyone by having in it the Australia Sydney Olympic Gold Medal winner sheetlet of 16. NO other way could you obtain this sheetlet. Hence my $A120 price - that sheetlet alone retails for $100 in many shops.

I have ALWAYS had the largest stock of year books in Sydney. I buy more estates than anyone else it seems, and also folks come to me when selling these books, as they know I will buy them. And I thus MUST sell as cheaply as I can, to MOVE all this stock or I will drown in it!

Check my '30% Off' discount for 10 year runs ... these are GREAT prices as you can see.  Get a massive '50% Off' for buying two runs!  I'd rather make $3 a book profit and sell 10 or 20 at once, than $10 a book and sell just one book.  That is where I differ from most dealers.  Also you save a fortune on shipping with carton buys.  1 book costs exactly as much to mail as 20 book cartons within Sydney Metro for instance.  You buy more - you pay less.  You do the Maths on that.  Which is why I am in business after 30 years, and most other dealers are not.

(** = These 'Specialist' books contain Frama labels, the expensive 'Across Town' labels, Box Link stamp, strips of peel'n'stick coils with info separator labels on them, booklets, and other highly sought specialist items etc. Most were broken down and ‘scrapped’ for postage. They are the exact same size and look as the other Year Albums, and are in hard slipcases, and are all very SCARCE as not many bought them. SPECIAL - all 3 Books for $A250 - save $35! )

 

 
 

* 2010-2013 Albums.  The production run of these years were cut back VERY sharply over previous years, the 2010 MOST noticeably. Certainly POs sold out VERY fast, and could not get more.  I have had a ton of orders for these, and few if any other dealers seem to have stock.

 
 
 

CONDITION NOTES:  The debut 1981 differs from all the others. NOT a hard board slipbox, or hard book covers, and all highly glazed, that scruffs and scratches and damages easily, and did NOT have an outer vinyl cover.  The “Deluxe” 1984 and 1986 books had strange outer covers, that had an oily content that generally “sweats” after 30 years. I’ve handled many 100s of each. They near ALWAYS are sticky/tacky, and shows fingerprints etc. And when left in outer plastic sleeves even moreso, often ‘sticking’ solid to them. The years either side are all fine.  Near all are like that after 30 years, and my books are hand-selected, and are better than most around.  The 1981, being issue #1, had thin, flimsy, super glossy varnished board covers, and never were issued with a vinyl outer, so always are somewhat worse for wear. The clear trend these days is to store the books free of the outer plastics that were NOT meant for long term storage.  And differed greatly in size, material and size over the decades. And in the case of the 1984 and 1986, create the “oily” cover issues. They look far better in the slipcases without plastic outers. Trust me!

NOTE - "Leather" Annual albums cost a large PO premium - from 2005 onward they cost $35 more ex PO. 

** Important Note - from the 2005 albums, Australia Post dramatically reduced the number of albums produced.  Far too heavily it seems, and they sold out around Christmas it is believed.  The 2005 LEATHER album (issue price a hefty $A114.95) was for the first time hand numbered in GOLD script i.e.: "Number 5037 of a Limited Edition of 8,000" on front page.   Only 8,000 were produced - a tiny fraction of the earlier years. 

Both versions of the 2005 albums contained a special Gold inscribed in margin sheetlet of 5 of Australian Parrots. The PO did NOT release that parrot sheetlet in ANY form via PO's or philatelic sales section - it was only available in the 2005 Year Books.  Retail of that quickly rose to $65 due to worldwide interest from bird collectors and specialists.  A large number of year books were busted down by dealers to remove this very desirable sheet, and those books will forever be off the market, increasing prices even more of already the far the lowest print books in history.

The 2006 and 2007 Leather Books (and we are told, all future ones)  were also numbered to just 8,000 copies.   Each 2006 book also included an exclusive Queen's Birthday MUH sheetlet of 4 - not obtainable ANY other way.  Dealers broke down many 2006 books to obtain this sheetlet.  Same with the 2007, which included a Botanic Gardens mini sheet not otherwise buyable. The 2008 contained a Beijing Gold Medallists sheetlet not obtainable any other way – retail $50 alone.

Superbly packaged “INTRODUCING
AUSTRALIA” Large Album

If you think your PO Book collection is complete you are WRONG unless you have this 1989 album!

"INTRODUCING AUSTRALIA" - THE BEAUTY, WILDLIFE AND HERITAGE OF AUSTRALIA THROUGH STAMPS” -  Been a DECADE since I had one of these in stock..

THE most lavish packaging of ANYTHING ever sold by AP in year book format.  EVER.  The BASIC nucleus of it is a full colour, hard cover 60 page book, with hard cover slipcase - the same size and look as a PO Year Book.

Then like in a Year Book, there are MUH stamps on Hagner from 1989 - Famous Australian Artists, Sport, Recreation, Performing Arts, Sheep and The Pastoral Era etc.  I've seen these collections offered in the past by dealers for around $250.  They are REALLY scarce,  A HEAP more photos here -
http://tinyurl.com/IntAust

Anyway ... be a long time until you see this one again, so if you THINK you have a full set of PO issued Albums, well you do NOT unless this one is added to the bookshelf!  (Order as stock code 451WF)

A bargain at just $A175 plus shipping.

Australia Post, 2000

Winners Deluxe Album Set
reduced $A30! 
HALF retail!

 
 

 

 
 
     
   

                                                                          .

 

45c - Ian Thorpe- winning the Men's Swimming 400m Freestyle

                      

                       Australian athletes won 16 Gold Medals at the 2000 Sydney Olympics. Australia issued a special decorative sheetlet of 10 stamps for EVERY medal winner. In a world first, these stamps were on sale nationally the day AFTER each medal win! See my three different front page 'Linn's Stamp News' stories on this remarkable world first  by clicking here:

Australia Post rushed out this special album, with all 16 Gold Medal Winner sheets inside, perfectly housed on black #1 size Hanger sheets.  A LOT of dealers and collectors overlooked this official issue, as it did not receive much publicity at all.  As "Olympics" is a major thematic/topical worldwide, this will always be a key item. And it is of course an 100% OFFICIAL Australia Post Album.

The FACE value of the stamps inside alone was $A72, and the album and Hagner sheets cost much extra.  I bought a bunch of these as I had a hunch they'd be overlooked.

The Hagners and Deluxe Album retail $40, so you get $72 in MUH face value – retail $125 alone, PLUS Album, making it $165 retail. Under HALF retail!  $A80 (Stock Code 563LX) (Or the 16 x MUH Mini Sheets, with no album - Under FACE at $A70! (Stock Code 563LY)

 

Cost for the whole deal illustrated here is $A80  - reduced down from $A110!

Same offer for 2004 Athens Olympics - very similar set

Australia Post Annual "Year Books" Black LEATHER "Executive" Edition complete - Book #1 to 2000  - $A415 under retail!  The "Leather" (Executive) books are VERY classy.  All have been Black genuine Leather covered, with brass corners, since the first issue in 1986, so they are a fully matched classy Black set. Covers are thickly padded and deeply gold inscribed on front and spine.  Each book has a matching gold embossed heavy slipcase ….. see the main photo above - the 3 slipcases are standing at back.  These keep dust and moisture OUT of your stamp albums and are ESSENTIAL in this climate.

Australia Post charges $35 more for each Leather album over the regular Year Book, due to high cost of making leather covers etc.  So retail is accordingly much higher - add that extra cost up over 15 books!  Numbers produced are a small FRACTION of normal books, so re-sale value stays very strong.  Sitting in a neat row on a lounge room bookshelf these look super classy - like a set of Law Books or Britannia's etc!  They come out each year in same design, so you can readily keep up to date.

The presentation of the stamps and the artwork and detail on the pages in these books is an absolute credit to Australia Post.  High gloss varnished paper, and double facing pages of info on EVERY stamp issue.  Laden with photos and factual background information.  For collectors with younger children or Grandchildren this is a goldmine for their education and general knowledge.  Or a family heirloom collection to keep up to date.

The 2000 regular Year Book surprised everyone by having in it, the Australia Sydney Olympic Gold Medal winner sheetlet of 16.  You could obtain this sheet NO other way.  That sheetlet alone retails for $100 in many shops. The 1988 LEATHER book has always been near impossible to source.

I have ALWAYS had the largest stock of Year Books in Sydney – portably Australia.  I buy more estates than anyone else it seems, and also folks come to me when selling these books, as they know I will buy them.  And I thus MUST sell as cheaply as I can, to MOVE all this stock or I will drown in it!

This is a lovely collection of EVERY leather book issued from 1986 (Leather Book Number #1) to 2000.  FIFTEEN matched books.   A large wine carton FULL.  My normal discount retail on these as you can see nearby is $A1,565.  (All later books are in stock of course.)  A superb gift idea perhaps for someone?  To clear this Estate lot fast, out they go for $415 less than retail - a round figure per set of 15 -  $A1,150  (Order as stock code 451WE)

 

 

“The Engraved Stamps Of The Commonwealth Of
Australia” - price *Reduced* $A200 this month!

The quite magnificent official Australia Post produced coffee table book. Compiled by Richard Breckon. Brass cornered, beautifully gold deeply embossed leatherette cover, gilt edged outer leaf edges, with matching marbled heavy slipcase. Issued in a VERY limited Edition for ‘Australia 99’.  I am advised only a few 100 copies were ever made, and were a near instant sell-out .... even at the very high issue price.  Being so recent they almost NEVER come on the market - no-one wants to let them go!

Semi opaque interleaved pages with designs on them. Real heavyweight grade archival weight paper. Varnished glazed paper for effect in parts. The photos really do not begin to convey the lavishness and class of this book.  My guess is the book and slipcase cost well over $100 to make.  Shows masses of issued designs and superlative background info.  Similar in size to a ‘Leather’ PO Year Book.
 

Also contains 28 different Official correct size recess printed DIE PROOFS in black from the original dies - from 1913 1d Engraved KGV to 1965 Anzac. Inc most early commems - like Bridge, Jubilee, Canberra, Hermes, Sturt, Sesquicentenary etc.  Also high value Definitives like the £1 Robes and Arms, 7/6d Cook &c.  All this at around $14 an official die proof!  And NOT obtainable any other way than via this book.

The die proofs sold separately would realise FAR more than the entire book is selling for here.  The KGV 1d Engraved, or £1 Robes could very easily bring $100 on their own if sold separately as official PO issued die proofs.

A magnificent book for ANY collector to own. Words cannot describe the lavish production and contents and luxury "feel" .... EVERY person - dealer or collector -
who has seen it here in the office desk picked it up and said "WOW"!  Gary Watson's Prestige Philately got $437 for a set in a Public Auction. They call them "without doubt the BEST product released by Australia post in recent decades”.  Bought 3 in an estate, and have reduced price of last 2 from $500 to just $300 each! Buy yourself a classy GIFT you'll always love handling and looking at  $A300  - (Order as stock number 428YS)


 

IMPORTANT NOTE  ...  all my stamps - on this page or other pages are charged in  AUSTRALIAN DOLLARS  at the $A prices shown.   Where I have used a £Stg or $US price etc conversion in text on any offer at any time - that is to be treated as very APPROXIMATE as it may have been computed a while back.  It was correct at that time, but $A exchange rates have been VERY volatile in recent times.   Please use the spinning gold currency converter found on Home Page of my website to ascertain the current EXACT amount in your own currency according to today's mid-rate.   Remember -  I will always charge your credit card the $A sum shown for each lot,  (plus shipping and insurance) and NOT the sum shown as rough approximation in a non-Australian currency.  

 

There are NO nasty 15% "Buyer's Commissions" or other such outrageous fees added to the price YOU pay when you deal with Glen Stephens.    A $1,000 Kangaroo stamp from me costs $1,000 plus shipping.    You could bid "$1,000" for the same Kangaroo stamp from an "Auction" house  (who in Sydney OFTEN owns the stamp themselves anyway!)  and it might cost $1,000 plus 15%  "Buyer Fee" plus 10% GST on that $1,150  = the "$1000" stamp is now often invoiced at $1,265.   All depends on whether possibly saving $265 is important to you I guess.     

 

 


Search this site
 

Search all my 300+ web pages! Simply type in what you are looking for. "Penny Black", "Latvia", "Imprints", "Morocco", "Fungi" "Year Books", etc! Using quotes ("  ") is more accurate for multi word searches - i.e. "Australian FDC" gives FAR more specific matches than simply Australian FDC if used with no quotes. Search is NOT case sensitive. Tip:  keep the search word singular - "Machin" yields far more matches than "Machins" &c.
