Although it’s not a sovereign state, the United Nations, to our surprise, issues stamps that can actually be used to send mail worldwide. Valid only if mailed from three locations (UN headquarters in NYC, Palais des Nations in Geneva, and Vienna International Centre), the stamps are are issued in denominations of U.S. dollars, Swiss francs, and euros, respectively.
On September 23rd, the UN Postal Administration will issue six stamps on the theme Break Barriers-Open Doors. For this stamp issue, UNPA selected artists from around the world with incredible stories that highlight the positive power of full and equal participation of people with disabilities. The stamps will commemorate a UN General Assembly meeting to raise awareness about the work of the UN in ensuring the equality and inclusion of persons with disabilities in all aspects of society and development.
