Covid-19 frontline workers are being honored in new Philippine stamps issued by the Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost).
The frontliner special stamps honoring frontline workers who have been involved in the battle against Covid-19 will be released on July 13, 2020.
PHLPost is paying tribute to Filipino frontline heroes for doing their jobs even if they are at risk of being infected with the virus.
The colorful stamps with the theme “We fight for you, Frontline Heroes, fighting against coronavirus”, illustrate Filipino workers involved in the battle against Covid-19 which include doctors, medical staff, military, police, delivery, supermarket, and food personnel.
The souvenir stamps feature the iconic artwork depicting modern-day “masked superheroes” in blue color, which symbolizes stability and responsibility.
“This postage stamp is our simple way of uplifting and boosting their morals and making them feel that their sacrifices are not left unnoticed”, Postmaster General Joel Otarra said.
PHLPost has printed 200,000 pieces of eight (8) different frontline heroes featured in the regular stamps to be sold at 12 pesos each. The stamps were designed by in-house graphic artist Rodine Teodoro.
A special 5,000 pieces of the limited collector’s edition of the souvenir stamps with a denomination of P55 each will also be released.
As PHLPost resumed services it has prioritized the safety of Philippine mail under new schedules. The postal office also accepts stamp orders from home and delivered right at the doorstep through its innovative “Stamp on Wheels”.
PHLPost will have a live Facebook event on the date of issuance of the said stamp on July 13 at 2pm. There will be a discussion on the future stamp issues and projects of Pilipinas Philately.
