You knew that? - In 1965, sculptor Arnold Machin was given the enviable task of designing the definitive stamp. Inspired by the Penny Black, his design was initially based on his bas-relief sculpture for the new decimal coins. Once perfected, his design was issued on 5 June 1967 and a stamp icon was born.
