CD ROM Postage Stamp - Bhutan

Bhutan is a small nation that is sandwiched between India and China. It has only been producing postage stamps since 1962 when it released its first international postage stamp. With many interesting postage stamps under their belt, they are known for their colorful, creative and collectible stamps around the world.

In 2008, Bhutan once again released a postage stamp like no other. The first ever CD ROM postage stamp was created to show the world what Bhutan has accomplished during the past 100 years. The stamp set commemorates some of Bhutan’s most historic events on postage stamps as well as on video. The 100th anniversary of the monarchy, the coronation of the 5th King of Bhutan, the evolution of Bhutan’s democracy and the eventual signing of a new constitution, are all showcased for the world to see on the stamps and the video set. These postage stamps are mini-CDs that fit into a self adhesive envelope. When affixed to a larger envelope, the CD stamp can be used as postage. Definitely worth collecting!
Postage stamps remain the primary source of revenue for Bhutan. The revenues generated have helped build the nations infrastructure.
