London 2012 Olympics: First Official Commemorative Stamps from Royal Mail
Each stamp has a standard first class inland letter post validity and features an image that depicts a particlular Olympic or Paralympic sport. The plan is to issue the thirty stamp Olympic series in three sets during 2009, 2010 and 2011 and the first day of issue for the 2009 stamps pictured will be 22 October 2009.
The 2009 Olympic stamp set will feature an image depicting a diver by artist Julian Opie and a David Doyle illustration of the Paralympic sport of Boccia.
The 30 stamps are "official products" for the 2012 Olympic Games and, as such, each displays the official London 2012 Olympics logo (or Paralympics logo).
