Guernsey continues to provide material for lighthouse stamp enthusiasts. On 2 May 2020 Guernsey Post issued a set of six stamps to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Liberation Day. One of the stamps has a stylized depiction of Castle Breakwater Lighthouse at St Peter Port at the left side of the stamp.

Jersey 2020 Lighthouse Stamp

On April 7th 2020 Jersey Post issued a set of six stamps in the EUROPA 2020 theme, “Ancient Postal Routes”. Since Jersey is an island, mail ships were an important part of those ancient postal routes. The 54p stamp clearly shows La Corbière Lighhtouse.
