Europa-100 Anniversary of the Boy Scouts

San Marino Postal Service will issue two new stamps that have postage values of 0.60 and 0.65 Euro named "Europa-100th Anniversary of the Boy Scouts" on the 2nd of June 2007. The stamps are being issued to Celebrate the 100th anniversary since Lord Baden Powell started the Boy Scott Foundation in 1907. Each of the stamp designs is described as follows:

  • 0.60 Euro - depicts 5 cub scouts with a globe in the center. This represents the five continents of the world. The map of the island of Brownsea on the bottom left indicates the place where Lord Baden Powell brought a troop of 20 boys in 1907 for the first experience of scout camping.
  • 0.65 Euro - depicts an adult scout and a young scout. The adult scout part of the stamp picture is taken from one of the many original drawings by Baden Powell himself. The young scout holds a roll of paper in memory of their heroism in the Boer War when boys were used to carry orders. At the center of the stamp design is a globe and to the right in the background is the Three Towers of San Marino and the Geographical outline of the State to identify the country issuing the stamps.

"Europa-100th Anniversary of the Boy Scouts" stamps can be purchased as a set of 2, or Sheet of 12. The size of each stamp is 30mm x 40mm with a 13 perforation using the 2cm reference. They will be printed by Phil@Poste using the offset printing process. A quantity of 140,004 complete sets will be printed.
