In accordance with tradition, Philatelie Liechtenstein will launch a new stamp edition for the Olympic games. On the occasion of the winter games in Vancouver, Canada, two Olympia stamps will be released. One shows a ski racer (value CHF 1.00), the second shows a cross country skier (value CHF 1.80).
Large oil paintings by the Canadian artist Mark Heine served as a template for the new stamps.
As with Beijing 2008, Philatelie Liechtenstein once again commissioned an artist from the country in which the games would be held, to design the stamps.
The Olympia stamps will be released on 12th February 2010.
