Date of Issue : 2 September 2013

Here are new stamps from Liechtenstein to be issued on 2 September 2013 featuring themes on Sports car performing Arts and Joint issue.

Sports and Touring Cars…

The car stamps, depicting another four rarities from the world of cars, continues the “Collections in Liechtenstein” series started in autumn 2012. All the sports and touring cars illustrated in this series were built in the 1950s and are today housed in the garages of Liechtenstein collectors, from which they are occasionally brought out for a short drive in Liechtenstein and the adjoining areas.

As in the earlier series the stamps are based not on photographs of these automotive treasures but on oil paintings by the Canadian artist Mark Heine. The lettering on the stamps is stamped in gold foil.
