2209. ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช Ireland’s “100 Years Of History”.

 New issues

๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช An Post (postal service of the Republic of Ireland) - 13 January 2022 - ‘One hundred years of history’ - 3 stamps. The featured events centre on the evolving situation in southern Ireland after the signing of the Anglo-Irish treaty which would lead, as 1922 went by. to the Irish civil war and at the end of the year, the independence of the territory as the Irish Free State as a Dominion within The British Empire

  The three anniversaries  commemorated on these stamps are the centenaries of the establishment of the Irish Army, the handover of Dublin Castle by the British and the establishment of the Civic Guard. The issue was printed in intaglio by Enschedรฉ and the stamps are perforated 14 x 13.5. Rating:- ****.

๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ช  On 11 January 2022 Jersey Post will issue a set of 6 excellent stamps and 2 miniature sheets, one containing the 6 stamps and the other containing a single stamp, on the subject of commercial aircraft which have visited the island on the occasion of the 85th anniversary of the opening of Jersey airport. The designs depict fine paintings of the aircraft by the artist Toby Dixon and the stamps were printed in lithography. Rating:- *****.


  1. I suppose Jersey have to commemorate the 85th anniversary because in 15 years they may not be producing stamps.

    1. And if they still do I will probably be too past it to wield a pair of tweezers.
