Important Liechtenstein anniversaries celebrated with special stamps

FindYourStampsValue.com got to know that Liechtenstein Post is to release a special series of stamps celebrating the important anniversaries. The issue consists of four stamps that are to be put into circulation on the 2d of March.

In 2015, four special anniversaries are being celebrated in Liechtenstein. The Liechtenstein Traditional Costume Association was founded in 1965. As a result of its commitment, the umbrella association of all the country's member groups that wear traditional costume and foster customs caused the cultivation and use of traditional costume to flourish ("50 Years of Liechtenstein Traditional Costume Association", value: CHF 0.85).

The Liechtenstein Development Service (LED) was also set up 50 years ago. Since then it has been providing official development aid on behalf of Liechtenstein's government and is active in various countries across the globe. In this context, LED's primary focus is to help people to help themselves ("50 Years of Liechtenstein Development Service", value: CHF 1.00).

In 1840, the world's first stamp "One Penny Black" was circulated in Britain. To commemorate this, the first stamp issued in Liechtenstein in 1912 is depicted on the special stamp "175 Years of Stamps" (value: CHF 1.40). The special stamp "25 Years UNO Membership" (value: CHF 1.90) is appearing on the occasion of Liechtenstein's 25 years of membership in the United Nations, which currently comprises 193 countries.
