[Post Danmark] 漢斯‧克里斯蒂安‧安徒生
Hans Christian Andersen (HK$27)

The Chinese designer Shen Jiahong has created the first four stamps, featuring motifs from 'The Shepherdess and the Chimney Sweep', 'The Nightingale', 'The Wild Swans' and 'What the Old Man Does Is Always Right'.

[United Nation Postal Administration] 里約+20
RIO+20 (HK$29)


聯合國大會通過決議,同意在 2012 年舉行聯合國可持續發展會議。該會議亦稱為「里約+20」或地球高峰會,在 2012 年 6 月 20 日至 22 日期間於巴西里約熱內盧舉行。「里約+20」旨在落實已更新的可持續發展政治承諾;評估有關工作目前的進度和實施主要高峰會有關可持續發展討論結果的空間;以及應對新挑戰和將會出現的挑戰。The UN General Assembly adopted a Resolution agreeing to hold the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in 2012. Also referred to as "Rio+20" or Earth Summit 20, the conference took place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on 20 to 22 June 2012. The objectives of the Conference are to secure renewed political commitment for sustainable development; to assess the progress to date and the remaining gaps in the implementation of the outcomes of the major summits on sustainable development; and to address new and emerging challenges.

備註:聯合國發行自己的郵票的想法是由阿根廷在 1947 年首次提出。1951 年,聯合國與美國郵政達成協議,規定美元面值的郵票只能在聯合國總部的郵局使用。聯合國於 1951 年 10 月 24 日,即聯合國日發行了美元面值的第一套聯合國郵票,立即獲得成功,在數天内銷售一空。其後聯合國還與瑞士和奧地利郵政當局達成類似安排。全世界只有聯合國郵政這既非國家又非政府的機構被允許發行郵票。聯合國郵局也是唯一以三種不同貨幣,即美元、瑞士法郎和歐元發行郵票的郵局。【資料來自:聯合國郵政
