“It’s also time for the Summer Olympics and for Rio 2016 we have chosen to feature three major sports for Israeli athletes – Track and Field, Judo and Sailing. Good luck to our team! These stamps are a must have for a collector of sports stamps.

“Continuing our historic series marking the WWI Centenary we are issuing a stamp on Aerial Warfare 1916. This is certainly an important issue for collectors of military and aircraft themes. This stamp tells the interesting story of aircraft used in Eretz Israel and features the German Rumpler C-IV airplane.
