About 75th Birthday of Prince Hans-Adam II / 80th Birthday of Princess Marie of Liechtenstein

The Princely House of Liechtenstein is celebrating two special anniversaries this year: "Princess Marie of Liechtenstein" (face value: CHF 2.00) celebrates her 80th birthday on 14 April 2020 and "Prince Hans-Adam II of Liechtenstein" (face value: CHF 4.30) celebrates his 75th on 14 February 2020. Philately Liechtenstein is commemorating the birthdays of the princely couple with a souvenir sheet consisting of two stamps with staggered perforation and classy-looking hot-foil embossing in gold. The current head of state, Prince Hans-Adam II, was born in 1945 as the eldest son of Prince Franz Josef II and Princess Gina. He is the first Prince of Liechtenstein to have grown up in Liechtenstein and the fifteenth reigning Prince of Liechtenstein. After the reigning Prince handed over the government affairs to his eldest son, Hereditary Prince Alois, in 2004, he devoted himself to the administration of the Princely House's assets which he still does to this day.

In 1967, Hans-Adam II married Countess Marie-Aglaé Kinsky of Wchinitz and Tettau. Born in Prague in 1940, her family was expelled five years later from what was then Czechoslovakia and fled to Germany. In Liechtenstein, Princess Marie has always been very committed to furthering social institutions.
