Republic of Guinea Issues UNESCO Stamps Featuring Bagan and Other World Heritage Sites

 In 2020, the Republic of Guinea issued a commemorative set of four stamps to celebrate the 75th anniversary of UNESCO. The stamp designs feature iconic world heritage sites, including Angkor Wat, Colosseum, Giza pyramid complex, and Bagan. The stamps were released on October 26, 2020, along with an imperforated version and first-day covers (FDCs).

However, the release of the stamps was marred by controversy with the fact that the Guinea post administration's authorized representative, Philatelic agency Stamperija Ltd., had produced the stamps instead. Despite this controversy, the stamps remain a unique and interesting addition to Burmanica collection, showcasing some of the world's most iconic landmarks and the important work of UNESCO in preserving them.
