Revered worldwide for the purity and rich creamy quality of their milk, the local ‘Jersey’ herds enable Jersey Dairy to produce over thirteen million litres of dairy products per year, for both the local market and increasingly, markets in the UK, the European mainland and Asia.
The stamps use paintings by established local artist Kathy Rondel, in either oil on deep canvas or watercolour and pastel and are named after the characters of each animal – ‘Clover’ (Local Letter) ‘Daisy’ (UK Letter) ‘Butterfly’ (Europe) ‘Florence’ (Local Large) ‘Dolly Maud’ (International) and ‘Buttercup’ (UK Large).
Man of Steel
Date of issue: 7 June 2013
Henry Cavill, star of the new Superman movie `Man of Steel`, is being celebrated by his island home with the release of a unique set of stamps. The stamp set is unique in many respects and is thought to be the first to be issued to coincide with the release of a major new movie. Each one of the six stamps in the set has been produced using existing state-of-the-art technology, developed by Cartor Security Printing in France. Each technique pays tribute to the Man of Steels super powers and are brought together for the first time in one issue.
For example, the 80p stamp features real crushed granite to symbolise the Man of Steel`s incredible strength. The granite particles were taken from just one small pebble found on Beauport Bay, a popular beauty spot on Jersey`s south coast and Henry Cavill`s favourite location on the Island.
Other features include a transparent stamp (55p), a foil stamp (60p), a thermochromic stamp that, when warmth is applied to the face reveals the Earth from space (68p) and glow-in-the-dark ink revealing a message from the Man of Steel`s father, which is only visible in the dark. A lenticular miniature sheet has also been produced which, when tilted, shows the Man of Steel flying across.
