Series EUROPE - Golden Eagle - Switzerland 2019 - 100 Rappen
|In 17 Wishlists|
The well-known and admired king of the skies and an inconspicuous, little noticed beach runner - this is the unequaled bird couple that graces the new EUROPA stamps of Swiss Post. The protagonists of this year's Swiss EUROPA brands could hardly be more different. On the one hand the undisputed star among the native birds, the golden eagle with its wingspan of over 2 meters. And on the other a little known straggler, the Sanderling. He is at home in the arctic tundra. On its way to more moderate latitudes, it can be seen on Swiss lakes between April and June. More information about the unequal pair can be found at vogelwarte.ch/steinadler or vogelwarte.ch/sanderling. On the stamps the (temporary) circulation area of the two birds is printed in a metallic color. If you also want to know how the birdsong sounds, you can scan this year's EUROPA brands from different countries with the CEE app. "EUROPA stamps" is the generic term for the stamps published since 1956 by the postal administrations of various European countries with a common theme. Switzerland is participating in this year's edition of the competition organized by PostEurop for the design of the most beautiful EUROPA brand, with the subject "Golden Eagle".
