Brazil 2016 Rio Olympics Special Edition with 3D Anaglyph Stamps

Issue date June-August 2016 (on Brazil Post Website the Souvenir Sheet is placed between 26 June 2016 issue and 08 August 2016 Souvenir sheets issue)

To commemorate the Olympic flag handover to Brazil, in a ceremony promoted by the Rio 2016™ Organising Committee for the  Olympic Games (5-21 August 2016) and Paralympic Games (7-18 September 2016), at Somerset House, London, where Casa Brasil (Brazil House) is located, Brazil Post has issued a 2 set Souvenir Sheet with 3D Anaglyph printing.

Printed in June 2012 in time to celebrate the handover of the Olympic Games from London to Rio, these souvenir sheets were being withheld from release by Brazil Post because of a licensing dispute with the Olympic Games organizing committee. 

The two souvenir sheets – one for the 2016 Olympic Games  and the other for the 2016 Paralympic Games – show the same scene in the background: Rio’s Sugarloaf Mountain and city below. The two stamps on the Olympic sheet bear the 2016 Olympic Games logo. One of the se-tenant stamps depicts Big Ben and Tower Bridge, while the other is an artistic representation of Sugarloaf Mountain. The Paralympic Games logo appears on each of the two stamps on the second sheet. In this case London’s Olympic Eye Ferris wheel is displayed on the first stamp while the second shows the famous Christ the Redeemer statue atop an artistic representation of  Corcovado mountain. The two souvenir sheets were issued in quantities of 15,000 sheets of each. The stamps in the two souvenir sheets are each denominated at R$2.60.
