Foil stamp issued by Finland in 2015 !!

Finland has a lot of skaters and skating teams, hundreds and hundreds of them. One amongst them is the "Marigold Ice Unity". It is one of the most successful teams. The team won it's 4th world championships with ease in April 2014.

Jane Erkko, a Finnish synchronized skater who established the Helsinki Figure skating club in the year 1972 introduced synchronized skating in Finland in 1985. Finnish Post issued a foil stamp in the year 2015 to mark the 30th anniversary of the laying the foundation of synchronized skating groups in Finland.  The stamp is printed on a glossy foil with glowing Silver Varnish coat.

Many thanks to Susanna Mylly from Finland. She used this beautiful stamp on a cover to help enrich my collection. Along with the 2015 stamp she used one of the Water and Archipelago cross shaped stamp. Thanks once again Susanna.
