New postage stamp to depict the island

The new First Class stamp
The Post Office are set to issue a new range of stamps for avid collectors everywhere depicting the islands of England and Wales. It was determined that there were too many islands in Scotland to use those. The Isle of Wight will be the face of the first class stamp, an honour indeed for the island. The Second Class stamp will be the Isle of Man, something we on the island have known for a long time.

Other stamps in the series will depict Anglesey, Lundy, St Michaels Mount and Lindisfarne with Jersey and Guernsey reserved for the higher denomination stamps.
