This booklet was around for three years and during its life it saw eight reprints, more than any other booklet has ever had.

The reprints go from 1 Koala up to 1 Kangaroo and 3 Koalas.

There were two additional variations of the cover also used. The first cover was used for the original and the 1, 2 & 3 Koala reprints. The second cover added a Bookabout panel and this was used for all remaining reprints except the 1 Kangaroo. It had its own cover with the Bookabout replaced with an Atlanta Olympics message.

There was one official overprint for this booklet. It was for the 1996 Canberra Stamp  Show.

A private overprint for the 1994 Petersham Fair was the third in the SCDAA series. This was available on the original print only.

It is interesting to note that the last two reprints did not have the circular die-cut for hanging on display racks at Australia Post Shops.

Advance Bank ATM

$9.00

2 November 1994

Contains: 20 x 45c

Booklet Measures: 83mm x 165mm

 

In 1994 the Advance Bank worked with Australia Post to produce a stamp booklet that could be dispensed from an ATM.

On the ATM there was a selection button that chose stamps instead of notes.

The booklet is dispensed flat but can be folded by removing perforated strips.

During testing stages there was a trial booklet produced. It was used by engineers and looked the same as the original printing, except that the kangaroos on the stamps were facing to the left instead of the right.

A reprint of the booklet was produced with a completely different cover, but the the stamp side was the same.

Three private overprints exist. ASDA Queensland 21 Years Of Service, Stampex South Australia 2003, and Salisbury 2009.
