🇳🇺 The postal service of Niue issued a set of 4 stamps and 1 miniature sheet containing all 4 stamps on 16 October 2019 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Birth of Queen Victoria. This colourful and attractive issue was designed by Hannah Fortune and lithographed by Collectables and Solutions Centre in Whanganui and is perforated 13.5. The chiefs of Niue appealed for British protection in 1889 but it was not until 19 October 2019 that Niue became a British ‘Possession’ hence ensuring that Victoria became its queen for a few months before her death in 1901.
