Malta Post Issues London Olympics Postage Stamps

On 27 July, MaltaPost will issue a set of two stamps commemorating the 2012 London Olympic Games. The stamps, valued at €0.37 and €2.11, depict the 2012 Olympic Games logo and Wenlock, one of the Games’ mascots.

“With 26 sports in play, 10,500 athletes taking part and millions of spectators watching the action, the 2012 Games are set to be one of the largest ever.
