Nauru Constitution Day first day cover released

A First Day Cover in commemoration of Nauru’s 50th anniversary of its Constitution was released Thursday.

The FDC features the Republic’s crest embossed in gold as the postage stamp, the First Day of Issue cancel (postmark), and a cache featuring the crest in full colour with the relevant dates and anniversary year.

Chairman of Nauru Post Samuel Grundler presented President Baron Waqa a folder containing the first day issue and explained the gold embossed stamp that is to signify the golden jubilee year for Constitution Day and Nauru.

President Waqa then presented the folder to Minister Scotty.

The event took place at the Nauru Airport VIP lounge in the presence of Cabinet Ministers, the Australian high commissioner, Taiwan ambassador and Nauru Post board members.

The first day cover and stamps are available for sale at the Nauru post office. The stamp is valued at $5.00.

The Constitution of Nauru came into force on 31 January 1968 but on 17 May 1968 the Constitutional Review Committee made alterations to the law, and this date is since recognised as Constitution Day.

Constitution Day is celebrated each year with an athletics carnival and friendly competition between the five groupings of district teams.
