2021 Portuguese stamps & some coins

Written by catpaw

May 08, 2021

2021 Portuguese stamps presented a bit of a struggle, designer-wise. I’m still searching for details on the stamp designers listed below and at best, I’ve found a few basic links, but nothing worth posting. For some reason, most of the links I found were dead or out dated. I’ll keep looking, it’ll be worth it. 

The good news is CTT, Correios de Portugal, offers solid information by way of downloadable pdfs. You can scoop them free and keep them for future references. They are high quality and the images are pristine.  

Bits ‘n pieces 

The Europa releases include joint issues with Madeira and Azores. I’ll be putting together pages for them shortly. Look for links to the country pages soon. Also of interest, is the franking label for World Tuberculosis Day. They don’t show up on most philately sites, but I liked them. I’m not a purist and enjoy plopping in all sorts of stamp related stuff. 

Enjoy the stamps.

The two stamps show a Collection of Monte Molião, dating from the 5th century B.C.E, with a photograph by José Pessoa, of the Municipal Museum of Sines and a Collection of Gaio, from the 6th century B.C.E., with a photograph by Luísa Oliveira, of the National Archaeological Museum.

According to Virgil Hipólito Correia, and as mentioned on the page of this issue, “since the beginning of the metal ages, goldsmithing has been a privileged field of experimentation and a preferred means of producing prestigious objects: large solid gold jewels, which marked the end of the Bronze Age”.
