The 41st president will be commemorated in a Forever stamp. The United States Postal Service announced that President George H.W. Bush, who died Nov. 30, 2018, will be the featured on the new stamp.
The stamp art is a portrait of Bush painted by award-winning artists Michael J. Deas and is based on a 1997 photograph by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders. Phil Jordan was the art director and stamp designer.
It will be issued as a Forever stamp, which will always be equal in value to the current First-Class Mail 1-ounce price.
The first-day-of-issue ceremony will be on the president’s birthday, June 12, at the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum in College Station, Texas.
It’s already available for pre-order to be delivered on or after June 12. For more information, click here or call 800-Stamp24 (800-782-6724).
