A new issue, exhibition overprints and third kiosk heralded a busy time for Jersey Post & Go in February.

New Post & Go Design
The new Post & Go design, Durrell: Saving Primates, was launched by Jersey Post on 13 February 2019 at Spring Stampex in London. The stamps were available to vend from Jersey Post’s JE01 kiosk, alongside Jersey Flag stamps printed with a special exhibition overprint. 

“Many Durrell species have previously featured on Jersey stamps but on this occasion, the focus is on primates,” explains Jersey Post’s Melanie Gouzinis.

“Six of them feature in this new issue, illustrated by wildlife artist Andrew Beckett to give an outstanding realistic representation,” she continued. “Gerald Durrell founded his Wildlife Conservation Trust in 1959 using expert knowledge during the last 60 years to save and protect threatened species and safeguard the natural world.”

As well as being available from Jersey Post’s JE01 Post & Go kiosk during the exhibition, the new issue will also be available from the JE02 kiosk at Jersey’s main Broad Street post office in St Helier. The 2018 issue Nautical Knots will also vend once again from JE02 from 13 February, for a limited time.

Stampex Overprint
Jersey Flag stamps featuring a special exhibition overprint were also vended from the JE01 kiosk during Spring Stampex. The overprint reads Spring Stampex 2019, accompanied by an illustration of spring flowers. Back office collectors’ strips will be available from Jersey’s B002 kiosk via the Jersey Philatelic Bureau. 

JE03 Kiosk
Jersey Post’s new counter-top unit JE03 made its first Stampex appearance in February, vending Nautical Knots together with the same Spring Stampex 2019 overprint and flower image that will appear on the flag. 

After Stampex, JE03 will be reinstalled in Jersey, vending the new Durrell: Saving Primates stamp issue with the location identifier ‘Jersey Post HQ’. A limited number of collectors’ strips will be available through the Bureau.
