Touring Australia - a maxi-card

Card no 319 – Penny

What a great card this is!  It is my first maxi-card.  In philately a maxi-card (also known as a maximum card, or maxicard) is a postcard with a postage stamp placed on the picture side of the card where the stamp and card match or are in concordance. In most cases, the cancellation or frank is also related to the image on the front of the card and the stamp.  The collecting of maximum cards is known as maximaphily.

The stamp and card are from the latest Australian stamp series – Touring Australia.
The cancellation on my card shows a petrol pump, how cool is that.

Welcome. I love it when visitors comment - even if it's only to say "Hi, I've been here!"
