Australia: 2000 Australian Gold Medal Winners Printing Trials. At the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games Australia Post created a world first by issuing instant stamps depicting each Australian gold medal winner after the medal ceremony, the stamps being made available for sale nationally coast to coast by midday on the day after the medal was awarded. Digital photographs were taken of athletes wearing their medals and processed into artwork for rapid approval by the appropriate Olympic officials before being transmitted electronically overnight to six national printing centres. The sheetlets (2 x 5) of ten stamps each denominated 45c. and with inscribed panel at right were then printed in pairs by Fuji Xerox Australia Pty Ltd onto pre-gummed and perforated paper. The following trials, believed unique, were printed before the Games and are understood to have been later discovered when Fuji Xerox vacated their Sydney premises: Two trial sheets depicting swimmer Ian Thorpe, one sheet perforated on gummed paper uncut (rouletted between), the other imperforate on ungummed paper, both showing a single corrupted example of the photographic vignette (this not the image later used) without inscription but with automated print error message at right. Thorpe was the most successful Australian athlete at the Games, winning three gold and two silver medals. Photo.
