PRESS RELEASE: PHLPost to issue OGCC commemorative stamps
August 11, 2015
The Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost) and the Office of the Government Corporate Counsel (OGCC)) signed an agreement on the issuance of Commemorative Stamps highlighting the OGCC‘s 80th Anniversary.
Postmaster General Josie Dela Cruz and Justice Raoul C. Creencia signed the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) recently at the OGCC head office in Balara, Quezon City.
“The Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost) takes pride in issuing the commemorative stamps, as we put on record 80 years of OGCC success”, Postmaster General Josie Dela Cruz said.
PHLPost will print limited copies of the commemorative stamp, and official first day cover to be released on December 1, 2015, in time for the OGCC’s 80th anniversary celebration.
The OGCC first began as a small corporate counsel division under the Department of Justice (DOJ) on December 01, 1935.
Based on the agreement, the OGCC anniversary commemorative stamps will feature the first Government Corporate Counsel, the late former Senator and Associate Justice of the Supreme Court Ramon Diokno and the official seal for the anniversary celebration.
A commemorative stamp is often issued for a significant occasion such as an anniversary, to honor or commemorate a place, event, person, or object. It is printed in limited quantities and sold for a much shorter period of time, usually until supplies run out.
