It was not by coincidence since the date this year marks the Second Sunday of Easter, which John Paul II called Divine Mercy Sunday. He also died on the vigil of that particular Sunday. The Philatelic Office is celebrating this important day with a joint issue with Poland, the native land of Pope John Paul II. The series consists of a stamp which is part of a minisheet of six produced by Polish artist Marzanna Dabrowska, and of a stamp&coin card which contains the stamp issue and a 50 cent coin for 2011 depicting Pope Benedict XVI. Also to be released for this special occasion is a folder containing a minisheet, the stamp&coin card, and a cancelled envelope with the cancellation bearing the date of the beatification.
