Stamp – Philately Day 1991 - Stamp from the 1st Revolt stamp
This was the third year that Israel issued a Philately Day stamp. A collector specialising in 'The History of Israel on Stamps' will find a spcial significance in the coin depicted on the five mil stamp from the Doar Ivri set. This is a bronze coin from the First Revolt period, bearing the words 'Freedom of Zion'. This stamp bears direct reference to the saga of the establishment of the modern State of Israel. During the stormy months of early 1948, before a name had finally been given for the new State, it was decided to print its first stamps with a neutral name - 'Doar Ivri' - Hebrew Post. The 1991 Philately Day stamp unfurls the story of the Israel's distant past, the First Revolt, and of the recent past, the establishment of the State of Israel.
