🇮🇴 The postal service of British Indian Ocean Territory will issue a set of 3 stamps on 14 October 2019 on the subject of Lizards of the Territory. These are attractive stamps but with £3 and £5 stamps in the set the issue is rather more expensive for collectors than it should be. On the other hand it is the first stamp issue of 2019 to be released by the Territory so BIOT stamps have not cost us too much so far this year. And the little gecko on the 60p Stamp is very appealing. Rating:- ****.

Also depicted below is the single stamp which was issued on 17 May 2018 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Constitution Day (see Blog 1237). This is a better quality illustration than I have been able to show previously.
