British Royal Mail just announced that it will release a new series of stamps inspired by the popular girl group Spice Girls.
The release is celebrating Spice Girls’ 30th anniversary, and it is the first time Royal Mail has honored a girl group with a stamp series of their own. It features 15 stamps, with 10 stamps showing some of the group’s most important moments, while the remaining five are adorned with portraits of Melanie Brown (Mel B), Melanie Chisholm (Mel C), Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell, and Victoria Beckham.
Spice Girls stamps will officially go on sale on January 11 and will be available as standard stamps and part of limited edition collections. This includes a presentation pack, framed stamps, a gold stamp set, and more.
“We are proud to celebrate the most successful female music group ever seen, not only for their music but their enduring influence over so many aspects of our lives,” David Gold, Royal Mail director of external affairs and policy, said of the release.
Spice Girls were formed in 1994 and released three studio albums before disbanding in 2000. Since then, the group reunited several times, most recently in 2018 as a four-piece without Beckham. They sold more than 100 million records worldwide and are considered the UK’s most-recognizable music act since The Beatles.
