About the Issue

On 5 August 2016, MaltaPost issued a stamp set entitled ‘Olympic Games 2016 – Rio De Janeiro’. These stamps commemorated the commencement of this year’s Olympic Game due to be held in Rio De Janeiro between the 5th and 21st of August 2016.


Over 10,000 athletes participated in this year’s Olympics. Malta took part in four sport disciplines, namely shooting, swimming, athletics and weight lifting, which these were depicted on the four stamps issued for the occasion which I designed.
