New Set Of Postal Stamps Honour Aussie Frontline Workers Who Persevered Through The Pandemic
A new set of postal stamps that pay tribute to the Australian frontline workers during the pandemic have been unveiled by Australia Post.
There is no denying the countless men and women who went to work or volunteered every day last year to keep us safe, protected, fed and healthy.
That’s why Aus Post wants to honour them for their service by immortalising their contribution in a stamp.
The Frontline Heroes commemorative stamp issue honours healthcare workers, Australian Defence Force members and police, educators, and essential services including postal workers, supermarket staff and deliverers of food and other essential items.
Australia Post Executive General Manager Community and Consumer Nicole Sheffield reckons it’s the least they could do to recognise everyone who got us through 2020.
“These brave individuals have been saviours to us all through the last 12 months, caring for our most vulnerable and helping us cope with the many impacts of COVID-19,” she said.
“Healthcare workers have tested millions, Australian Defence Force and the police services have helped monitor our borders and quarantine arrangements, and educators have been quick to adapt to online learning.

“Our posties, delivery drivers and supermarket staff have kept businesses running and provided access to essential products and services, and we thank them together with all Australians for their continued efforts.”
There are five stamps in the collection, with each stamp costing $1.10.
They were designed by The Australia Post Design Studio and illustrated by Robert Elliott.
You can nab the stamps at participating Post Offices, via mail order on 1800 331 794, and online.
