50 Years of the Liechtenstein Chess Federation

Face value CHF 0.85
Motif Knight
Face value CHF 1.80
Motif King

Liechtenstein’s Chess Federation has celebrated its 50th anniversary on 5 July 2021. It is home to the two chess clubs Vaduz and Triesen and has been a member of the Liechtenstein Olympic Committee (LOC) since June 2011. One year before its big anniversary, the federation decided to change its name and since then has been known as the Liechtenstein Chess Federation (LCF). At the same time, the federation's logo, which focuses on the figure of the knight, was modernised.

The "Knight" (face value: CHF 0.85) also serves as the motif for one of the two special stamps now being issued to mark the federation's 50th anniversary. The second stamp shows the "King" (face value: CHF 1.80). The chess stamps, issued for the first time in Philately Liechtenstein’s history, are in white, black and gold, embellished with gold foil embossing and the high relief embossing of the individual figures.

Among other things, the Chess Federation has dedicated itself to youth development. With its project "Chess in Schools", it contributes to the personality development of children as well as to supporting their promotion and education. But many adults and especially senior citizens of all genders are also passionate chess players.
