YEAR OF SAINT MARTIN FDC
In 2016 the 1,700th anniversary of the birth of Saint Martin of Tours is being celebrated, in honour of which Magyar Posta is issuing a commemorative stamp. The design shows a depiction of the saint and text from the medieval codex the Pannonhalma Evangelistarium, which is embellished with gold foil. Two hundred and forty thousand copies of the stamp with a nominal value of HUF 115 designed by the graphic artist Barnabás Baticz were produced by ANY Security Printing Company. The new issue will be available while stocks last at first day post offices and Filaposta in Hungary from 18 March, but may also be purchased from Magyar Posta’s online store.
