'Mini' Nostalgic Design Stamps by Royal Mail

Mini: Design Stamps by Royal Mail

For those who loves MINI cars, like me, you would adore this MINI Design Stamps by Royal Mail. Came in a set of 10, these first class stamps have been issued during January this year to commemorate 10 icons of British design. This Royal Mail's new series offers up a nostalgic look at some British Design Classics, from the 1930s and 1960s. A “prestige stamp book”, issued alongside the design stamps, will provide a more extensive background and history of the 10 design icons.

To mark the Mini’s 50th and Concorde’s 40th birthdays, Royal Mail is also issuing a "generic sheet" of 20 stamps (Mini series designed by Magpie; Concorde by Neon) and "medal covers" for each which have been designed by the Royal Mint Engraving Team. All stamps and sets will be available from Royal Mail.
