On the occasion of the one and a half century anniversary of the passing to eternity of the Ruler Alexandru Ioan Cuza, Romfilatelia introduces into circulation on Monday, May 15th this year, the issue of postage stamps entitled Alexandru Ioan Cuza. 150 years since death, consisting of a postage stamp and a First Day Cover.
The stamp with the face value of Lei 2.20 of the issue reproduces in the image of the postage stamp a less used portrait of the ruler, in a graphic ensemble in which the image of the coat of arms of the Union of Romanian Principalities is also associated.
The First Day Cover has as its main compositional element a photograph of the ruler taken by the well-known photographer and painter Carol Popp de Szathmáry, inserted in a background in which the image of the coat of arms of the Union shines through.
The “first day” postmark reproduces a stylized portrait framed between the figures indicating the year of birth and death, respectively of the first ruler of the United Principalities.
Romfilatelia thanks the representatives of the Iași City Hall, of the Bucharest Municipality Museum and of the “King Ferdinand I” National Military Museum for the documentary and photographic support granted to the development of this issue of postage stamps.
The philatelic issue will be available starting with Monday, May 15th, 2023, in Romfilatelia’s shops network in Bucharest, Bacău, Brașov, Cluj-Napoca, Iași and Timișoara and online on https://romfilatelia.ro/store/.
