Americans have been intrigued by Elephants since the first one arrived on our shores in 1796. The cute and fun elephant stamps 2022 from the U.S. Postal Service celebrates the affection and ever-evolving connection between humans and elephants.

There is something about elephants that makes people love them. The flapping ears and the mouth seemingly curved into a smile have captured hearts worldwide. But it’s more than that. They fascinate because they display a social complexity and full emotional range that reflect those of humans. Elephants, like humans, are one of the longest-living land mammals. They practice teamwork, demonstrate the capacity for empathy and grief, and establish lifelong bonds of family. Herds are organized into complex matriarchal societies; calves are raised and mentored by the entire pack.
America’s feelings toward elephants have evolved since that 18th-century introduction. Then, the relationship was challenging for elephants: While Americans loved the floppy-eared giants, they were not always conscientious in providing care and nurturing for the emotional and sensitive creatures. However, changing attitudes in the United States have increased the awareness of the conditions of captive elephants, encouraged circuses to discontinue their use as performers, and enabled legislation to ban ivory importation and to support conservation efforts for elephants in the wild.
Artist Rafael López created the original art and designed the stamp. Derry Noyes was the art director.
The Elephants stamp is being issued as a Forever stamp in booklets of 20. This Forever stamp is always equal to the current First-Class Mail one-ounce price.
