Lostisland Post, the national postal operator of the Federal Republic of Lostisland, released today its Series 2020 stamps. Due to the ongoing pandemic, the issue was delayed by more than a year.
In Lostisland’s postal tradition, the stamps depict prominent historical figures — usually whose anniversaries of birth or death fall on the date of issue. For Series 2020, these figures are:
- Saint John Henry Newman (1801–1890) — prominent English cardinal and theologian
- Sigismundas Knuševitskis (2004–2019), also known as Fim — the First Cat of Lostisland who witnessed the creation of the nation and passed away in 2019
- Prophet Joseph Smith (1805–1844) — the founder of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
- Saparmurat Niyazov (1940–2006), also known as Türkmenbaşy — the first President of Turkmenistan
- General Robert E. Lee (1807–1870) — American Civil War hero.
Since its establishment in 2012, Lostisland Post has been issuing new stamps every year, usually around May, and sometimes twice a year. To date, the most well-known Lostislandic stamps are Series 2017 Genghis Khan, popular among Mongolian stamp collectors. With a total of 37 different stamps issued, Lostisland Post is one of the most prolific micronational postal operators.
The new Lostislandic stamps are already available for purchase, in sheets and individually, from the official online store.
