2020 Lighthouse Stamp From Spain

On 30 June 2020, Correos (Spain) issued a very interesting stamp to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Royal Yacht Club of Santander. Below are four images but they are from the same stamp. Because of the way the stamp is printed using a prismatic process, as one views the stamp from different angles the sailboat appears to move through the water. At the right edge of the stamp we see La Cerda Lighthouse which is located at the eastern end of the Peninsula de Magdalena.

2020 Lighthouse Stamp from Germany

It appears that Germany has abandoned the lighthouse stamp design that has been the norm from 2004 to 2018. The stamp issued featuring Campen Lighthouse in 2019 was a new design as is the latest issue. On 2 July 2020 Deutsche Post issued a new lighthouse depicting Schleimünde Mole Lighthouse. This stamp is available in regular gummed sheets of ten as well as self-adhesive stamps sold in coils.

Deutsche Post also released what they call a “plug-in card” in July 2020. This card includes 16 of the lighthouse stamps previously issued including the recent 2020 one. It also includes 15 ATM stamps. In addition to the included stamps, the card also features images of both Schleimünde Mole Lighthouse and Moritzburg Lighthouse.
