🇮🇲 We are of course not surprised to find that the greedy Isle Of Man Post Office is to issue no fewer than 12 stamps (cost of set £9.36) plus a Prestige booklet sold for £18.72 to tie in with the upcoming Olympic Games. The issue is said to commemorate the 125th anniversary of the first holding of the Games. The issue was designed EJC Design and lithographed by bpost and the stamps are perforated 13.5. The designs depict a number of Manx athletes as well as some notable former and present British Olympians. Rating:- **.
