About Railway History Anniversaries

Magyar Posta is marking the two railway history anniversaries of 2023 with the issue of a commemorative miniature sheet. The first Hungarian steam locomotive was produced 150 years ago and the first electric locomotive entered service in Hungary 100 years ago. Magyar Posta devotes the proceeds of the surcharge on two stamps of the miniature sheet totalling HUF 150 to supporting youth stamp collecting. Ten thousand copies of the commemorative miniature sheet of four stamps designed by the graphic artist Imre Benedek were produced by the printing company Pénzjegynyomda Zrt. The new issue will be available at first day post offices and Filaposta in Hungary from 4 April 2023, but may also be ordered from Magyar Posta’s online store.
