A new commemorative stamp dedicated to the Fiat 500 has been unveiled in Italy.

The Fiat 500 postage stamp celebrates the iconic car’s 60th birthday, and will be considered a collector’s item with only one-million units produced. It has a value of 0.95 Euro and is printed by Officina Carte Valori of the State Printing Office and Mint. Featuring an unmistakable outline of the Fiat 500 superimposed on the new Fiat 500, the stamp has a dark blue background accented with a band in the colors of the Italian flag near the top. It also highlights the 60 years of the Fiat 500 and the words “Fiat Nuova 500” is in the same font used in the 1957 advertising posters.
