The Isle of Man Post Office are issuing a set of eight collectable stamps to commemorate 50 years since the first manned landing on the moon.

Titled the "One Small Step" collection, the stamps showcase photographs of the moon taken by NASA, alongside various missions undertaken that led up to that 'first step' in 1969.

This issue covers missions 1 to 11 leading up to the first Moon Landing.

A second collectable set will be released in 2020 covering missions 12 to 17.

We are very proud to honour the anniversary of the Moon landing with these impressive pictures captured on our stamps and are grateful to NASA and George Abbey in particular, for their support and assistance in bringing this collection to life.”
