Shakespeare's 400th Anniversary of his Death – Royal Mail First Day Cover

The newest Royal Mail First Day Cover is dedicated to Shakespeare, marking the 400th anniversary of his death (23/04/1616). The ten stamps in this new collection have some of his words, which still influence millions around the world who read his work to this day.



Philip Parker, Head of Stamp Strategy at Royal Mail, explains: ‘It is fitting that Shakespeare is being honoured with a set of stamps to mark the 400th anniversary of his death. The stamps celebrate the power of his language, which continues to influence us every day.’
