A COLLECTION of stamps to commemorate the Falkland Islands Referendum, due to take place on March 10 - 11, was released today.
The four stamps have values of 3p, 40p, 75p and £1.76p. The colourful stamps show an image of a hand inserting a vote into a ballot box which carries a design displaying an outline of the Falkland Islands.
The accompanying souvenir sheet with a value of £3 consists of the same design but also shows the actual question in the border together with the statement 'A peoples' right of self-determination is a fundamental modern democratic right'.
