Happy 80th Birthday

Mr Lee KuanYew, the Prime Minister of Singapore from 1959 to 1990, celebrated his 80th birthday on 16 September 2003.

Some people asked me whether there is a stamp featuring him.

The answer: There is no stamp featuring him. However, there is a stamp showing him in the background.

Here is the stamp.
