COALition for a Coal Miners Commemorative Postage Stamp
The Coal Miner Stamp was approved as a part of the “Made in America” stamps put out by the U.S. Postal Service in the fall of 2013!
This win represents over a decade of contacting state and federal elected officials, newspapers, coal-related tourist sites and museums, coal related authors and other celebrities, and anyone else they can think of whose letter to the Citizens Stamp Advisory Committee might make a difference.
They collected over 17,000 signatures, and supporting other signature collection efforts, such as the one being conducted by the Knights of Columbus.
EPCAMR has been a continued supporter and Friend of this particular Coalition for many years. We encourage you to read their newsletter and join their effort as we have done in order to have a simple request…that a stamp be commemorated in honor of the Coal Miner, if not for our Region, but for the lives they endured to make this Nation, a great country. If Mickey Mouse can have a stamp, so can the coal miner.
