Australia will again be on the world stage hosting the XXI Commonwealth Games at the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia from April 4, to April 15, 2018.

This is the 4th Commonwealth Games Australia will be hosting, and following along the lines of tradition, commemorative stamps honouring the Games will be issued.

So I thought a little display of all the issues printed since 1962 will be a nice way to recognise Australia's important athletic event, second only to the Olympic Games.
