2021 Guernsey Lighthouse Stamp

On 10 June 2021 Guernsey Post issued a set of six stamps to celebrate the designation of Sark as the world’s first dark sky island by the International Dark Sky Association. One of these astro-themed stamps shows Point Roberts (Sark) Lighthouse.

2021 Guernsey Lighthouse Issues

*** Updated with new information

We have two recent lighthouse issues from Guernsey. The first is a variation of the previously issued Post & Go label featuring Baliwick Planes. This variation commemorates the 2021 Virtual Spring Stampex and was issued on 11 March 2021. It shows White Rock Pier L/H and Castle Breakwater Lighthouse.

The second issue is part of the Europa: Endangered National Wildlife series issued on 7 Apr 2021. Noirmont Lighthouse on Jersey is shown at the margin of the sheet of 10 stamps showing the basking shark. I have been informed that this is not Noirmont L/H but Vivian Tower, a daymark at the approaches to St. Peter Port in the Little Russel Channel. Thanks, Jaap.
