JERSEY. 2018 - Post & Go issues


The JE01 at SPRING STAMPEX 2018. The new 'Visiting Naval Vessels' series

In 2018, Jersey Post again installed its JE01 philatelic kiosk at London Spring Stampex. Following Royal Mail's decision not to install kiosks and to reduce their presence at philatelic fairs, the new 'Post & Go' zone was moved from the central area of ​​the Business Design Centre to one end of the gallery bays, on the top floor. Here the JE01 machine shared the space with the Guernsey Post and Royal Gibraltar Post Office kiosks, as well as the Cartor Security Printing demonstration machine (More information).

With a similar issuing policy shared by the three postal administrations in recent years, the definitive design produced by the kiosks during Spring Stampex included a special commemorative imprint, in this case dedicated to Valentine's Day.
However, this time Jersey Post decided to replace the unique 'Jersey flag' design with the 'The Crest of Jersey' series of six designs, with the special imprint
Be My Valentine
Spring Stampex 2018
next two graphic designs in the shape of hearts.

A new 'Visiting Naval Vessels' thematic series was also available from the kiosk, without any special impression.

The first block of the code at the bottom of all the stamps issued by the kiosk at this philatelic event is B2GB18 JE01-, followed by the session and stamp number.

The new series features six Royal Navy vessels that have taken part, in recent years, in the Jersey Boat Show, a maritime event held annually in the port of Saint Helier. The ships are HMS Severn, HMS Raider, HMS Kent, HMS York, HMS Ranger and HMS Trumpeter. All Royal Navy vessels include the prefix HMS, which stands for 'Her Majesty's Ship'.

Jersey Post produced a presentation pack and a pictorial first day cover, together with a special postmark exclusive to this philatelic product.

The illustrations of the stamps and other philatelic products produced with this series are by Andrew Robinson.

The new series could be obtained, from February 14th 2018, from the JE01 philatelic kiosk, installed temporarily at London Spring Stampex 2018, and from the JE02 kiosk permanently installed at Broad Street Post Office, in Saint Helier, Jersey, with the usual permanent imprint 'Broad Street'.
