May 2010 was the month in which stamp collectors, dealers and auctioneers, and postal administrations from around the world attended the London 2010 International Stamp Exhibition.

Issue information

The exhibition was part of the year-long London 2010: Festival of Stamps, which marked the centenary of the accession of King George V, ‘the philatelist king’.

We marked this amazing event by issuing an exhibition miniature sheet and exhibition souvenir cover.
