    Are there any stamps of presidents of other countries? I know the Commonwealth stamps have the Queen on them, but what about other places?

    I think I do have one Nelson Mandela stamp.
    I have not seen a coin with Mandela. :)

    I think that there has been a Winston Churchill featured on a U.S. stamp, but I don't have it. I do have these two, which apply in a round-about way. One is Queen Isabella of Spain, and the other is Sam Houston, who was the President of Texas from 1837-1845 when it was an independent republic.

    That's interesting! Who knew Texas had their own president, this is one to keep for sure

    That's a nice "photoshopped" image, not a real stamp though. Anything the President does, consumes or uses generates interest. I doubt he has promoted it. Very interesting Zee! :)

    I bet we aren't too far away from sponsorship on U.S. stamps. The USPS is losing too much money to not think about it.

    It looks like a good stamp but I would have put on there using twitter or holding an academy award.

    Hello all, no input for a month on this topic, so I thought I'd add a King.

    King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s Thai full title is “Phra Bat Somdet Phra Poramintharamaha Bhumibol Adulyadej Mahitalathibet Ramathibodi Chakkrinaruebodin Sayamminthrathirat Borommanatbophit”
    He is also known as Rama IX, as he is the ninth monarch of the Chakri Dynasty. Having reigned since 9 June 1946, he is the world's longest-serving monarch.
    The stamps below show images during the kings life.
    The central stamp is gold foil. It looks better in the scan than on stamp..
    Date of issue: 2007-12-05 (HM's birthday)

    Nice stamp sheet. The Rama IX is much easier to remember. :D

    Can you imagine putting that name on an envelope to send him a letter? Nice stamps.
