Guernsey Postal Service has issued six new stamps that have postage values of 44p, 59p, 60p, 73p, 80p and 90p named "Europa: Castles" on May 4th, 2017. These stamps depict several views of Guernsey Castle Cornet. It was build in 1202 to defend St. Peter Port which was once a busy trading harbor in Guernsey. Castle Cornet is listed as a Protected Monument now, and is a museum within itself, with five other museums within its ancient walls. Europa stamps are special stamps issued by European Postal Administrations that bear the official EUROPA logo. Each year PostEurop's Stamps and Philately Working Group selects the Europa stamp theme for the year. This year theme is Europa: Castles.

The size of each stamp is 38mm x 38mm with a stamp perforation size is 13.75 x 14.75 using the 2cm reference.
