The new stamp and its cover mark the 60th anniversary of the Cayman Islands coat of arms.

The Cayman Islands coat of arms, which is 60 years old this year, is featured on a new $2 stamp.

The Postal Service issued the stamp on Friday, Oct. 19 as part of the ongoing year-long anniversary celebrations. The single stamp issue depicts the coat of arms against a blue background and mentions the 60th anniversary. The stamp is available in a souvenir sheet format. The background for the souvenir sheet displays the national flag along with the Celebrate Cayman branding.

The stamps went on sale at all post offices on all three islands on Friday.

“Our Coat of Arms has an interesting history which the Cayman Islands is marking with the ongoing ‘Celebrate Cayman’ initiative. So we are delighted to be taking part in the 60th anniversary celebrations with this latest stamp issue,” said Postmaster General Sheena Glasgow in a press release.
