"WOW - What A Joke"

Half the world starves, yet Jersey's finest waste their money on this arrogance.

If you want to impress your friends with the "WOW" factor, go to http://plan-international.org/ and sponsor a child! The price of these....'stamps' will feed a child and its family for TEN MONTHS.

IS THAT NOT A BIT MORE "WOW"!!!

Jubilee stamps have the 'wow' factor

Jersey News from ITV Channel Television - queen


It is not uncommon for the Queen to appear on Jersey's stamps, but never before has she been wearing a real diamond!

Jersey Post have created the first ever stamp to incorporate a genuine diamond to celebrate 75 years of The Queen's Accession.

As expected, they are not your every day minimum postage issues - these £2 stamps will set you back the princely sum of £125.

Each hand-cut diamond is struck to the aptly named Diamond Diadem worn by The Queen on one of two stamps contained within the Limited Edition Souvenir Miniature Sheet. The other stamp features her late father, King George VI.

On 6 February 2012, Jersey Post will issue just 600 Limited Editions.

Sally Diamond Ferbrache is the designer behind this unique stamp issue and she said: "We've always had a close relationship with Cartor Security Printing of France; the Managing Director, Ian Brigham, had shared with me early in 2011 that they had developed a unique technique of being able to affix a real diamond to a stamp.

"Of course, given the Diamond Jubilee, it was an opportunity we could not miss. And to be the first British postal administration to do so was the icing on the cake."

If you want to get your hands on one, they are only available from the Jersey Philatelic Bureau and purely on a first come, first served basis.

  1. A small error in this statement! "Half the world starves, yet Jersey's finest waste their money on this arrogance."

    Its not their money its money that belongs to the hard working people of Jersey and they would have spent it more wisely.
