The Coal Miner Stamp was approved as a part of the “Made-in-America” movement! The stamps were released 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 authors, celebrities, etc., whose letter to the Citizens Stamp Advisory Committee might make a difference.
The coalition collected over 17,000 signatures and supported other signature collection efforts, such as the one being conducted by the Knights of Columbus.
EPCAMR supported this coalition for many years and is proud to have taken part in the fight. We encourage you to read their newsletter and check out their FaceBook page for information on their successful campaign.
