These stamps mark the centenary of the signing of the Anglo-Irish Treaty on December 6, 1921 in London. Both stamps feature important memorabilia directly connected with this momentous event.
The signatures of both the Irish and British delegations are reproduced on one stamp. The Irish delegates were led by Arthur Griffith and included Michael Collins, Robert Barton, Eamon Duggan and George Gavan Duffy.
Prime Minister David Lloyd George led the British negotiators, who included Austen Chamberlain, Lord Birkenhead and Winston Churchill.
The second stamp consists of Arthur Griffith’s aspirational message, written immediately after the treaty signing.
