Issued to honour Sir Donald’s legacy, the se-tenant pair features the same portrait of Sir Donald Bradman (from the late 1930s) and photograph of Sir Donald in action (his favourite action shot) used in the original Australian Legends issue. The surrounding design and accompanying text have been modified, but retain a strong similarity to the original products. Sir Donald’s span of years, 1908-2001 and the year of issue have been added.
