Europa stamps, bearing the official logo, are issued every year by the members of PostEurop, the trade association which represents the interests of European public postal operators. Aiming to build awareness of the common roots, culture and history of Europe and its common goals, EUROPA stamps are eagerly sought after by collectors around the world. Each year a theme is set for members to interpret and illustrate on a set of stamps; in 2020 the theme Ancient Postal Routes has been selected for our interpretation.
The first mail ships set sail to-and-from Jersey in 1794, since then the island has been serviced by dozens of mail ships and passenger boats. A variety of vessels that span Jersey's mail ship history are depicted on this six stamp set.
All our mint/cto products are carefully prepared by our own team and supplied in glassine bags to ensure you receive them in pristine condition.
In 2020 the theme set by PostEurop for our interpretation is 'Ancient Postal Routes' and we have chosen to feature mail ships that served the Island of Jersey. Six stamps show a variety of vessels that span the history of Jersey's mail ships. The stamps have been illustrated by acclaimed stamp artist Martin Mörck.
