POST Luxembourg launches its first crypto stamp this fall

14 June 2023

A unique collaboration between the postal companies of Luxembourg, Austria and the Netherlands 

In October 2023, POST Luxembourg will issue a crypto stamp for the first time, a new generation of stamps connected to blockchain technology. This NFT stamp is the result of a unique collaboration between POST Luxembourg, PostNL and Österreichische Post. In autumn 2023, the new cryptographic stamp will be launched simultaneously in Luxembourg, Austria and the Netherlands.

With this collaboration, POST Luxembourg joins Österreichische Post and PostNL, who had already issued their first joint crypto stamp in September 2022. Indeed, the Austrian postal company is at the forefront of crypto stamps. As the first postal company, it issued crypto stamps in 2019.  

Pierre Zimmer, Deputy General Director of POST Luxembourg commented: “More than 170 years after the first stamps were issued in the Grand Duchy, this year we will be introducing a new and innovative way of collecting and exchanging stamps by using blockchain technology. Through the collaboration with Österreichische Post and PostNL, we aim to build a global community of stamp collectors while making collecting and exchanging more accessible, convenient and secure.”  

“Our first crypto stamp has proved extremely popular among classic collectors and NFT enthusiast”, states Bob van Ierland, Mail Natherlands Manager at PostNL. “All variants of the issue of the first Dutch crypto stamp are now sold out. By cooperating with postal companies in Austria and Luxembourg, we hope to generate even more interest in this new type of stamp.” 

Georg Pölzl, CEO of Österreichische Post: “Our know-how in crypto and blockchain technology is in demand worldwide. We will be issuing the next joint stamp in autumn, together with the postal companies of Luxembourg and the Netherlands, under license. The next crypto stamp issue will thus be placed under the unifying motifs of our three countries.”
