A new stamp set featuring King Charles III has been launched by the Gibraltar government. Released in partnership with the Gibraltar Philatelic Bureau, the Gibraltar Definitive 2023 set has been crafted by local Gibraltarian artist Leslie Gaduzo.
The design incorporates St. Edward’s Crown and retains the same elegant oval border as the 2014 “Definitive” stamps, the last ones to showcase Queen Elizabeth II.
According to the government, the 2023 stamps are available in a range of vibrant colours, allowing postal users to differentiate easily between various denominations. They are printed on high-quality self-adhesive paper, departing from the traditional gummed paper, which enhances their convenience for postal users. The new stamps will gradually replace the existing “Definitives” once stocks at the Royal Gibraltar Post Office are depleted.
Members of the public – including tourists visiting Gibraltar – can acquire the stamps from the Philatelic Shop at 104 Main Street or online at www.gibraltar-stamps.com
Announcing the launch, minister for postal services Nigel Feetham said, “I am thrilled to introduce the new series of Gibraltar Definitive stamps… This stamp set not only celebrates our enduring connection to the monarchy but also highlights the exceptional artistic talent thriving within our community.
In September, another set of stamps was launched to commemorate King Charles III’s coronation.
