Golden Stamp - Miffy’s 65th Birthday - Collectibles for only GBP £48.08
This year we are celebrating Miffy’s 65th birthday. Out of all the characters in Dick Bruna’s picture books, Miffy is the most beloved all over the world. To celebrate this special anniversary, PostNL will be issuing a unique limited edition golden stamp. These postage stamps will be marked 'Nederland 1', the denomination for items up to 20g in weight destined for the Netherlands.
PostNL only issues these limited edition golden stamps to celebrate special anniversaries and other remarkable memorable occasions. Previous golden stamps were published for 350 years of Rembrandt, 40 years of Erwin Olaf (portraits of King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima) and the End of the Second World War series. Each stamp is made from 24-carat gold.
Miffy was ‘born’ in 1955, when Dick Bruna told his eldest son a bedtime story about a white rabbit. Over the past 65 years, out of all the characters in Dick Bruna’s books, Miffy has become the most famous and popular across the world. In the Netherlands she is called Nijntje, but elsewhere she has been known as Miffy since 1996. Many children recognise themselves in Miffy and her adventures. She is uncomplicated, innocent, positive and open to new experiences.
