Lostisland Post, the national postal operator of the Federal Republic of Lostisland presented today five new stamps of this year’s series.
As is customary for the Lostislandic postal tradition, the stamps are issued on the occasion of anniversaries – of either birth of death – of important historical figures. For this year and as suggested by the Life President, the national operator commemorated four important dates:
- The 100th anniversary of the 35th US President John F. Kennedy, regarded as the one of the most prominent American leaders of the XX century;
- The 150th anniversary of Carl Gustaf Emil Mannerheim, the 6th President of Finland considered as one of the country’s heroes for his ability to withstand both Nazi and Soviet domination;
- The 790th anniversary of death of Genghis Khan, founder of the world’s largest contiguous empire; and
- The 525th anniversary since the start of pontificate of Alexander VI, the 214th Pope known for overseeing the evangelization of the Americas, as well as for patronage of beauty, refurbishing Roman churches, resolving a conflict between Spain and Portugal by supervising the Treaty of Tordesillas which possibly postponed the start of the first world war for over 400 years, and for many other accomplishments.
It is also for the first time that Lostisland Post issues a stamp with the President for Life himself with his official portrait.
All the five stamps have the value of 2 reais, Lostisland’s symbolic currency equivalent to euros, and are available for purchase from the Lostisland online store.
