Stephan van den Eijnden, Mail Netherlands Commercial Director, on the new stamp: “Over the past few weeks, the Netherlands’ love for our untameable lionesses has grown ever stronger. That is due in part to their amazing success, of course, but also to the drive and enthusiasm that the Dutch European Championships women’s team has constantly displayed. We have enjoyed watching them play, and this pure silver postage stamp is a symbol of our pride in their achievement.”
PostNL has commissioned the Royal Dutch Mint to manufacture the postage stamp, which is made from pure silver. The stamp, in a deluxe storage box, is available for €25 via www.postnl.nl/Kampioen. The stamp will be produced in a limited run of 2,300 copies. The postage stamp has the ‘Registered Mail’ designation, and may be therefore be used to send letters as registered mail.
