First Day Cover

Dylan is one of ten Remarkable Lives with Royal Mail stamps

Dylan Birthplace proudly issues First Day Cover

In the year of Dylan's centenary the Royal Mail have issued a stamp bearing his image. The issue date was 25th March and Dylan is one of ten Remarkable Lives. The series commemorating people born in 1914 also includes footballer Joe Mercer, Joan Littlewood and Sir Alec Guinness.

It has been four years since the Birthplace started a dialogue with Royal Mail's CEO Moya Greene and their Head of Stamp Strategy Philip Parker. At times it looked as if all was lost but eventually Dylan came out as the only Welshman to be honoured
