Sark 450 Years as a Fief to the Crown

Products in this Issue

Sheets of 10



This year the tiny Channel Island of Sark celebrates 450 years as a Fief to the Crown. From dragon slaying to pirates and gold mines the fascinating history of Sark is brought to life with a beautifully illustrated set of stamps and miniature sheet.

Sark is the smallest of the four main Channel Islands and, although it lies at the heart of the archipelgo and is part of the Bailiwick of Guernsey, its history was for centuries quite unconnected to its neighbouring isles.

As Sark celebrates 450 years since the appointment of its first Seigneur, life on the tiny island with its strong community, lack of cars and immense natural beauty remains unique in the modern world.
