2021 Jersey Lighthouse Stamps

2021 has been a great year, so far, for Jersey Lighthouse stamps! First was the Post and Go issue in February. That issue was followed by a set of 6 stamps issued on 11 March titled Europa 2021 – Endangered National Wildlife – Jersey Seabirds & Marine Life. None of these six stamps shows a lighthouse but each is available in a mini-sheet of  10 stamps and each of the sheets features the island’s iconic La Corbière Lighthouse at the left margin. On the first day of April 2021 Jersey Post issued another set of photographic stamps titled Jersey From the Air showing St. Catherine’s Breakwater L/H on the 74p value and La Corbière L/H on the £1.75 value. The photographs for these stamps were taken from drones giving a unique perspective of Jersey’s scenery.

2017 Gibraltar ATM Lighthouse Stamp

Michael from Scotland recently called this stamp to my attention. It is one of a set of Frama labels (ATM stamps) that was issued by Gibraltar on 30 Sep 2017 recognizing Lodge Anniversaries. This stamp showing Europa Point L/H commemorates the 300th Aniversary of the United Grand Lodge of England.
