New Europa 2015 Stamps: Liechtenstein

liech europa stamps

This year’s Europa stamps, which are issued by the Member States of the Organization of European postal companies, Posteurop, rely on the topic of toys. The Liechtenstein edition includes two special stamps and shows Liechtenstein play figures made in the 1940s, a “polar bear” (face value CHF 1.40) and a “goat” (face value CHF 1.40). The artistic implementation focuses on the actual purpose of the figures, playing. Thus, the images look like snapshots of childhood scenes: The polar bear enjoys the air in the freezer of the refrigerator and the goat climbs  a lemon proudly.
