Six of the photographs are to be chosen to be depicted on a set of 6 stamps combined in, I think, a sheet as we have seen on previous occasions including last year’s royal visit, and a prize draw will be held as an incentive to encourage people to participate in the competition. Three dollars from the sale of each sheet will be donated to the New Zealand Red Cross while it continues “to support New Zealanders to stay at home and save lives”.
I imagine this sheet will be issued in the very near future. New Zealand Post was planning to release a set of stamps on 6 May 2020 to commemorate the now postponed Tokyo Olympic Games and this Teddy Bear issue may well replace it.
🇯🇪 As well as the already announced stamps, miniature sheet and Post and Go stamps Jersey Post intends to also issue another ‘Commemorative sheet’ to note the 75th anniversary of the island’s liberation at the end of the Second World War from occupation by Nazi forces. The price of the item will be £12.50p. The sheet is made up of 20 x ‘Local letter’ rate stamps with attached labels. I think the date of issue will be 9 May 2020. Rating:- 0.
