Swiss Post unveils the Roger Federer stamp

10.04.2007 | Off Court

Swiss Post has presented the special Roger Federer stamp to the public. Chief Executive Officer Ulrich Gygi presented the tennis player from the Basel region with his special present at Basel town hall. This is the first time ever that a living person has been depicted on a Swiss stamp. The stamp, with a face value of one franc, is available now.

 

Swiss Post has lifted the secret surrounding the Roger Federer special stamp. Chief Executive Officer Ulrich Gygi unveiled the picture at Basel town hall and presented Roger Federer with a large-format stamp. The 1-franc stamp shows the world's number one tennis player holding up the winner's trophy at Wimbledon.

 

Swiss Post's special stamp is a unique gift to Roger Federer. It is the first time that it has issued a stamp featuring a living person. Roger Federer has been the number one in the tennis world for over three years longer than any other player. With his sporting successes and his activities off the court as UNICEF ambassador, for example he has done a great deal to promote the image of Switzerland abroad in recent years. This is why Swiss Post is dedicating a stamp to this exceptional sportsman.

 

Swiss Post announced on 26 February 2007 that it would be issuing a Roger Federer stamp. However, the actual picture to be featured remained a secret until it was presented to the tennis player. The stamp is now available at all Swiss post offices and philatelic salespoints and at www.post.ch/philashop.
