The first release of the 1d letterpress George V stamp occurred at the general post offices of Sydney and Melbourne on 17 July 1914.
Together with the King’s profile - the same royal profile as depicted on Great Britain’s stamps - the new stamp design also featured a kangaroo, emu, sprig of wattle and the crown.


The George V stamp was a 1d denomination for basic letter postage within Australia and within the vast British Empire.
