Title: 40th Anniversary of Postal Independance
Date of Issue: 30 July 2009
Country: Guernsey
Denominations: 36p, 43p, 51p, 54p, 56p, 77p

Until 1969 Guernsey’s postal service was run by the UK’s General Post Office, before the island took over the responsibility itself.

As we celebrate the 40th anniversary of what is now Guernsey Post Ltd, we do so in the time-honoured way: with a new set of stamps.

These convey general impressions of each decade from the 60s to the present – a tall order which the designer addressed through the use of appropriate visual styles, rather than picking a single event or object at the expense of other, equally deserving ones.
