Technical Description of the Commemorative Stamps

The Mabini sesquicentennial commemorative stamps feature the four
winning entries of the Mabini@150 postage stamp design contest which was awarded to Ms. Pinky Luduvice, Kenneth Katimbuhan, Julius Ratparam Mark, and Dylan Ray Talon.

First Day Cover

Born from humble beginnings, Apolinario Mabini showed early a rare
intellect. A teacher, a writer, a lawyer, a reformist – the life of the
Brains of the Revolution is a testament that poverty is not an excuse
not to do great things.

“Mabini inspires us all that challenges – be it in terms of financial
capabilities, illnesses, and even politics – are never hindrances to do
the tasks at hand and achieve our goals,” said PMG Dela Cruz.

About 105,300 copies of the stamps were printed using imported
unwatermarked paper, in Php10 denomination. These are available at the
Post Shop of the Manila Central Office and at regional offices of the
PHLPost.
