Special edition King Felipe and Queen Letizia stamps launched today

SPECIAL edition stamps of King Felipe and Queen Letizia have been launched today by postal service Correos.

The stamp from the Fabrica Nacional de Moneda y Timbe – Spain’s national coin and stamp manufacturers – celebrates the Royal couple’s ascension to the throne on June 19.

They are going on sale to the public today, as yesterday – the Dia de Hispanidad, and the day the stamps should have been launched – was a Sunday.

The stamps show official photographs of the King and Queen – taken in 2010 – with the words ‘Felipe VI. Rey de Espana’ superimposed in gold.

Both can be bought for a euro each, with 300,000 copies of the first edition – there may be more – available to buy.
