Commemorative Issue: Refugee Fund 1984

Fourth Refugee Stamp

On 12th September 1974, the Government of Cyprus decided to impose an additional postage of 10mils beginning with 1st October 1974 to support the Refugee Relief Fund. The first "Refugee stamp" was the 5 mils stamp of the definitive issue of 1971. The words "Refugee Fund" were overprinted in Greek, Turkish and English and it was surcharged to 10 mils. The second refugee stamp we released on 2nd December 1974 and a new issue of the same stamp was released on 10th November 1975. The third refugee stamp was released on 10th January 1977 and depicted the woodcarving "Cyprus 1974" by the Greek engraver A. Tassos. The change of the subdivision of the Cyprus pound from mils to cents on 3rd October 1983 resulted in the change of the value of the refugee stamp. Consequently, the third refugee stamp is being released again with changes in the year and in the value.
