🇬🇮 Royal Gibraltar Post Office is planning to issue a set of 10 definitive stamps on 25 June 2020. The design featuring the territory’s coat of arms is not terribly interesting especially as each stamp is in a single colour but it may be that the stamps themselves look rather better than the publicity illustrations suggest. The designs are by Stephen Perera and the stamps were lithographed by Cartor. Rating:- ***.
🇬🇬 Guernsey Post is now featuring on its internet Stamp and Collectables site two of the winning designs from its COVID-19 Children’s art competition. One of the illustrations depicts a stamp inscribed Alderney of which there will be a total of four and the other is inscribed Guernsey which will be part of a set of 8.
It looks as though the site is about to publish full details of the issue but a ‘READ MORE’ indicator on the site currently leads no more.
Addendum - reply to Norvic’s comment below. Thank you Norvic, I agree with everything you say in your comment, as always. To be fair about the 60p stamp it may be that the illustration does not accurately reflect what the real stamp looks like so it will be good to see what the stamp looks like in the flesh, so to speak. Many of Gibraltar’s stamp designs are undistinguished and unmemorable using just a not always well chosen photograph and manipulating it on a computer and adding a bit of lettering. There are far too many issues from Gibraltar and most of them add nothing of interest to one’s collection.
