Grand coat of arms
Face value CHF 6.30
Motif Grand coat of arms

.To mark the 300th anniversary of the Principality of Liechtenstein, Philately Liechtenstein is issuing the "Grand National Coat of Arms" (face value: CHF 6.30) as a special stamp for the third time in history, in addition to the embroidered anniversary stamp that appeared in January. For the production of the six-colour special block, every possible step was taken in terms of printing technology: blind embossing, hot foil embossing in gold as well as UV varnishing and iridescent colours give the issue its exclusive look. The years 1719 and 2019 as well as all the coats of arms of the eleven municipalities of the country decorate the special block. The grand national coat of arms is identical to the coat of arms of the Princely House of Liechtenstein and was introduced on 4 June 1957. The shield-shaped coat of arms contains six motifs on the origin and history of the noble family. One of them is the golden-red coat of arms of the House of Liechtenstein. It forms the heart shield. The other motifs refer to Silesia, the duchies of Troppau and Jägerndorf, the coat of arms of the Kuenringers and Prince Gundaker's first wife Agnes of East Frisia. The national coat of arms is encased by a princely mantle crowned with the princely hat.
