Silver Stamps are minted by the Royal Dutch Mint and issued by the royal mail PostNL. The theme of the newest silver stamp is the most famous cycling race in the world: the Tour de France. Very popular because of, among other things, the celebrity cyclists and the exciting climbs on the Alpe D’Huez and Mont Ventoux. This year the Tour de France (Grand Départ) starts from Brussels!
The reason for this issue is the 100th anniversary of the yellow jersey.
The stamp has an official stamp status and can be used (from NL) for registered mail (but this is not recommended).
