SYDNEY 2000 Olympics, Australia Post Prime Minister’s Dinner, Deluxe Stamp Album
SYDNEY Olympics, Prime Minister’s Dinner, Super Deluxe Stamp Album
What a truly cool stamp item. 8)
The Australian Prime Minister, the sports mad John Howard hosted an official Olympics Games 2000 dinner, and as Australia Post were a Major Sponsor of the 2000 Olympics, they offered to present all invited Dinner participants with a super Deluxe, brass cornered Album for the attendees.
The exact same album presentation as the 4 x late 1990s Australia Post “Engraved Stamps” books which contain Die Proofs, with Brass corners - all of which I have in stock at around this price each. Heavily Gold embossed front covers, with the Coat Of Arms of the Commonwealth of Australia, with the Olympic Wreath all around it (!), and hard matching slipcases etc. And a ton of Australia Post Olympic stamp issues inside, as you can see.
Near all attendees were IOC Big Shots, and Senior politicians and dignitaries, and former ozzie Olympians and so on, who kept them as Dinner souvenirs. So very few of these Prime Minister Dinner Stamp Albums have ever leaked into the secondary market. When did YOU ever see one offered???
AP never SOLD any of these to the public at ANY time. These are HEAVILY sought, not only by Olympic Collectors globally - but by all keen collectors of Australia Post official issues, and indeed folks who collect all the Post Office issued albums.
They are almost never seen in the marketplace. Prestige Auctions invoiced one for $365 in Auction 88, and the only other one I can see offered is priced at $375 -

The album follows the journey of the 2000 Olympics from Atlanta 1996, to Athens 2004, using Mint stamps and Sheetlets of 10 MUH, First Day Covers and Maximum Cards, all contained in a spectacular deluxe Gold Embossed book, with brass corners and matching lather look Gold embossed hard solid slipcase.
This superb book has 44 pages and 16 x heavy grade semi-opaque printed on dividing pages, even the page edges are classy gold highlighted as you can see, and is a hand numbered limited edition. Contents include AP Managing Director’s Letter, and Atlanta 1996/Sydney 2000, Olympic Torch, Sydney Olympic Games Emblem etc. Also the "International Stamps" : Sydney Views, Olympic Sports and Sydney/Athens etc.

And please do that NOW. Too many think “I’ll do that later” and then quickly “forget”. I then lose the stamps in the rubble here, and waste an annoying hour finding them again.
All payment details etc are on: https://www.tinyurl.com/GlenPay - NICE franking is used when I mail : see member pix of that franking here - https://tinyurl.com/GlenCTO - and COMBINED POSTAGE is fine - save big money buying more than 1 lot at once!
For overseas members, to find out the approx cost in YOUR currency, click here - https://www.xe.com - the $A has CRASHED lately, and for USA buyers etc, these prices are REALLY cheap in your money!
MONEY BACK GUARANTEE - don't like it - mail it back within 48 hours of receiving it. No-one ever has yet.
Remember, adding another lot of mine (posted by either Admin, GlenStephens or Global Administrator or ozstamps) here (or on my website https://www.glenstephens.com/rarity.html ) for sale in general adds ZERO to your shipping cost, so have a good look at what is on offer here, in case something else appeals:
And "lay-by/layaway" is always possible - email me with any queries to glen [at] glenstephens.com - OR "trade-ins" always possible! If you have a pile of surplus stuff, I may well be happy to offset that against this item, see: https://tinyurl.com/GlenBuy
As most know - I do NO fairs or shows, have NO shop, and do NOT bother with ebay or any other auctions. I buy endless bulk lots from Estates, and distress sales etc, in this massive city of 6 million, with no other real stamp buyers, and offer it here at NETT prices for fast turnover. NO "20%-25% Buyer Fees" and “3% credit card fees” to add to my NETT prices, as in auction!
Many similar mouth-watering NETT price offers are being loaded weekly onto - https://tinyurl.com/GlenRare and https://tinyurl.com/GlenSpec
All stampboards lots $A100 and under are generally mailed Unregistered and untracked at YOUR total risk, unless YOU specifically note otherwise on order form. 1000s of my transactions here for 10 years have been safe by normal post.
Orders over $100 are normally sent Registered (PO cover is to $A100 only sadly) - cost is extra $A4 local, and minimum $A16 ($US12) extra foreign, depending on weight. Only YOU know if your street or Apartment address is secure - a large packet covered in pretty stamps left outside, just might tempt passers-by? Only YOU know that, I do not. Mail contractors these days are often lazy and leave packets on top of mailboxes etc in view of public, and/or out in wet weather etc. PO Boxes are FAR safer.
"All Risk" Insurance is always possible if required as well, and is cheap at $A2 per $100 covered - and all are strongly advised to use this, and I will, unless asked not to. Full detail on all of this - https://tinyurl.com/Glen2-15 It is like Travel Insurance - decline that when booking your ticket, and THEN tell Qantas you really meant to take it 3 weeks back, and you now need to cancel your ticket for no penalty, and see how you go with THAT one!
As per stampboard convention - this lot is offered exclusively first to board members - and on no other sales venue.
For members who make a BANK TRANSFER or Money Order etc, you WILL generally get your goods faster, as it saves me some hassle - but you MUST email me the confirmation number etc - many "forget"!
