Commemorative Issue

Overprints on 1985 Definitive - 4c to 15c

Cyprus
The surcharge on stamps, already in circulation, with new values, brings out entirely new stamps which take their place among the stamps released. Surcharges on stamps take place when postages are revaluated, when certain values are exhausted or when a change in the monetary system of a country occurs.

This surcharge concerns the stamp of 4c of the definitive issue of 1985 and its new value is 15c. This stamp depicts the impressive Kykko Monastery where the famous icon of the Holy Virgin, the work of the Evangelist Luke, is kept.
