UN postal stamp

Chinese heritage sites such as The Great Wall, Mount Huangshan and the Mogao Caves are some of the images selected for six new stamps to be issued this week by the UN Postal Administration (UNPA).

These new postage stamps celebrating the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage sites in China will include three collectible prestige booklets and a variety of officially postmarked first day of issue envelopes.

UNPA issues stamps in three different denominations – US dollars, Euros and Swiss francs—and can be purchased at UN stamp shops in New York, Vienna and Geneva or at unstamps.org.

UN Radio's Fan Xiao spoke to the head of UNPA, David Failor, who first explains these World Heritage stamps.
