Britain's 2011 Christmas stamps have been revealed, with five different designs celebrating the 400th anniversary of the King James Version of the Bible. ...
Due to be issued on 8 November, the Royal Mail's Christmas stamps show various nativity scenes including Baby Jesus and two cows (on the 68p value) and the three wise men (£1.65). The Christmas stamps are one of the most anticipated designs of the stamp schedule, since many millions of Britons use the stamps to send Christmas cards around the world.
The stamps will feature on a miniature sheet, while each value will also be available on self-adhesive sheets. The 1st and 2nd Class values will also be issued in booklets.
Find out more about the Christmas stamps in the December issue of Stamp & Coin Mart, on sale on 11 November 2011.
