Immerse yourself in the captivating beauty and awe-inspiring wonder of coral reefs with the 2019 USPS Coral Reefs Postcard Stamps.
These exquisite stamps feature highly stylized digital portraits, showcasing four distinct types of stony corals accompanied by their vibrant reef fish counterparts. Marvel at the elkhorn coral, gracefully accompanied by two French angelfish. Explore the intricate patterns of the brain coral alongside a spotted moray eel.

Coral reefs are magnificent creations that form over thousands of years, shaped by the collective efforts of polyps and small animal colonies. These polyps secrete protective calcium carbonate or limestone skeletons, forming the foundation of coral reefs. Over time, as new polyp colonies grow on top of the old skeletons, these reefs thrive and expand.
Coral reefs are vibrant ecosystems, serving as vital habitats for a quarter of all ocean species. Snorkeling enthusiasts can attest to the sheer spectacle that unfolds when approaching a coral reef. Suddenly, many fish in various colors and species emerge, accompanied by marine life, such as sea urchins, seagrass, octopuses, and lobsters.
Art director Ethel Kessler meticulously designed these stamps, while the stamp art was skillfully created by Tyler Lang, capturing the essence of coral reefs in a stylized manner.
Emphasizing their usage value, the word “POSTCARD” on these stamps ensures their perpetual validity for the printed rate. Like Forever stamps, these postcard stamps will always fulfill the postage requirement, making them a timeless choice for your postcard needs.
