Van Rompuy - the face on Belgium's commemorative stamp for its EU Presidency

Friday, 2 July 2010
Well it certainly appears Mr Herman van Rompuy is indeed going to play a figurehead role in his countries' six-month rotating presidency of the European Union in the absence of a new coalition government - his image appears alone on the presentation sheet of the special edition postage stamps that have been specially produced as is custom for such occasions.

Each individual stamp features the eutrio logo decorated in the colours of the Belgian flag and is of the value of €1 - the cost of posting a letter to any country in the European Union.

Priced at €4.50 a sheet, should you so desire to own such a 'collectors item' visit the online shop of La Poste (readable in Dutch, French or German only).
