H.H. Benedict XVI in New Postal Envelope

To coincide with the last day of Pope Benedict XVI as pontiff, the Philatelic and Numismatic Office of the Vatican City released an official envelope for 2013.

This 230 x 110mm envelope features a view of St. Peter's Square from a photo by Biagio Tamarazzo. A 2 euro stamp bearing the portrait of H.H. Benedict XVi by artist Mariangela Crisciotti is printed on the upper right of the postal stationary. A total of 20,000 pcs were printed by Tipografia Vaticana.
