The United States Postal Service revealed on Feb. 12 that it will issue a nondenominated ($1.20) Moon global forever stamp Feb. 22. The stamp is formatted in self-adhesive panes of 10.
Although the news was revealed just 10 days before the announced issue date, there has been no official confirmation about whether or not there will be a first-day ceremony.
The stamp is the fifth in a series of round global forever stamps issued by the U.S. Postal Service.
The first, picturing Earth, was issued Jan. 28, 2013 (Scott 4740). Later stamps showed a Christmas wreath in 2013 (4814), Earth with sea surface temperatures highlighted in 2014 (4893), and a wreath of silver bells in 2014 (4936).
