Philipsburg:--- Postal Services St. Maarten NV is busy producing and will be introducing a number of scenic stamps of the island this year, and with the scenic theme will be in Dutch to cater to the huge dutch stamp collector market. Due to delay in production, both the 2012 and 2013 scenic sets will be featured and offered in 2013. The scenic set of stamps for the two years combined will feature eight (8) different scenes of the island. Snapshots were taken from different locations on the island and artist impressios made.

PSS would like to remind the general public of the themes for the year 2013, which will feature: Churches, Birds, Heroes, SXM Scenes, Butterflies, Boy Scouts, 200th Anniversary of the Dutch Kingdom, Classic Boats, Light houses, Chess and Classic Paintings.
