StampNews.com hurries to inform that PostNL issued a special Silver Stamp in honor of Dick Bruna's 88th birthday and 'Miffy turns 60' on the 24th of August. This was the first time the Silver Stamp featured a color image on silver.

Miffy colours

PostNL used a new technique for the Silver Stamp. Colour printing was used on silver for the image of Miffy, highlighting the characteristic Miffy colours. The stamp was manufactured by the Royal Dutch Mint in Utrecht.

The artist announced his retirement from drawing last year. His books are still wildly popular. This provided a good reason – in addition to Miffy's birthday – to issue a Silver Stamp on the little white rabbit.

  • This is a “PERSONALIZED” stamp! It was NOT in the 2015 stamp program and will NOT be listed in catalogues!
    PostNL themselves issue many “personalized” stamps each year only to make extra money from collectors.
    The value of each stamp is €8.15 for registered mail (‘aangetekend’) but they are sold for €25 each!
