The current thread about portraying living persons on upcoming
US stamps made me curious to see if there is a thread showing
stamps of living personalities on stamps worldwide which seems
to catch on like the plague.

No rulers or leaders please, which would exclude emperors,
kings, queens, princes and the whole royal lot. Nor presidents,
dictators,chancellors etc.

Lets start with Austria which used to have a very conservative issuing
policy until about 10 years ago.
The only living person that could be displayed during Imperial times
was the Emperor and under the republic the President.

Then in 2003 the floodgates opened with

The Rolling Stones Souvenir Sheet Scott 1924


Werner Schlager ( Austrian world champion table tennis player) Scott 1935


Oscar Peterson (Canadian Jazz Pianist) Scott 1940


Riccardo Muti (Italian Conductor) Scott 1945


Seiji Ozawa (Japanese Conductor) Scott 1946


Josep Maria Carreras (Spanish Opera Tenor) Scott 1947

Joe Zawinul (Austrian - American Jazz musician) Scott 1955

Arnold Schwarzenegger (Austrian - American ctor, Gov of Calif) Scott 1961


Nikolaus Harnoncourt (Austrian Conductor) Scott 1974

Lorin Maazel (Franco - American Conductor) Scott 1976



Stephan Eberharter (Austrian World Champ & Olympic Skier) Scott 1978


Carl Djerassi (Austrian - American chemist & novelist) Scott 1990


Heidi Klum (German model, actress) Scott 2013


Niki Lauda (Austrian Formula 1 driver) Scott 2016


Mariss Jansons (Latvian Conductor) Scott 2034


Muhammad Ali (American boxer) Scott 2038


Karlheinz Böhm & wife Almaz(Austrian actor) Scott 2043


Franz Beckenbauer (German football player, manager & coach) Scott 2006


Naomi Campbell (British model) Scott 2049


This list is only up to May 2006.

Australia Post had a change of policy in 1997, and introduced its Australian Legends series, which comes out just before Australia Day (January 26th) each year, and features notable living Australians. So far, only Scobie Breasley, who died in December 2006 (after the stamps were prepared), was not alive when the stamps were released.
There were rumours that a disgraced philanthropist was removed from the planned issue of 2008.
I understand that footballers (of various codes) will be saluted in 2012.
In 2000 AP released a sheet of 25 Faces of Australia for the millenium. These were not famous people.
From 2000 Summer and Winter Olympic gold medalists have appeared (within hours or days) on stamps. A ridiculous number of stamps were issued for Commonwealth Games gold medalists in 2006.
Living Australians appear quite frequently on stamps now.

stallzer - Your Jefferson Davis stamps were issued by the Confederate States of America, not the USA. And are you suggesting that poor old Jeff, who was president of the Confederacy (and who died in 1889), is now a Dixie Zombie? - nethryk

Javier Pereira

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


This article is about the Colombian supercentenarian.

Javier Pereira (allegedly born 1789, date of death unknown but most commonly given as March 30, 1958) was reputedly over 160 years old at the time of his death. He was a Zenú Indian who lived in Colombia. Although his death is variously said to have been in 1955, 1956, and 1958, sources all claim that he was born in 1789.

He was said to have had five wives and to be seeking another when he was "discovered" in 1954; allegedly his last remaining grandchild had died in 1941 at the age of 85. Interviewed by historians, he was able to supply information about well-known historical events such as the Battle of Cartagena, fought in 1815, as well as about Indian conflicts and a terrible famine that had taken place years before. Asked about the secret of his longevity, Pereira said that one must chew cocoa beans, drink plenty of coffee, smoke a big cigar now and then, and not worry. Pereira was flown to New York City to be checked by teams of modern doctors. He was four feet four inches tall and weighed seventy-five pounds. He had no teeth but his hair was still brown. He had the blood pressure and arterial health of a young man, could easily stand on one leg and pirouette, and walk several blocks and up a couple of flights of stairs without losing his breath. One doctor said he had the appearance of a man "more than 150 years old," which raises the interesting question of how the doctor would know that even if Pereira were actually as old as claimed.

The most specific death date reported is 30 March 1958 in his home town of Montería. His obituary was reported in Time for 14 April 1958 on page 88. Colombia issued a postage stamp commemorating Pereira.

Since the stamp was issued on 28 DEC 1956, he was alive for fifteen more months.
