Paralympics gold medal winner (2012)

Royal Mail issued individual and team stamps for gold medallists at the 2012 Paralympic Games within five working days of their success. Royal Mail had thought the large number of gold medals expected to be won at the Games would make it difficult to produce an individual stamp for all the gold medallists but in the end 34 stamps were produced. It was the first time Royal Mail had issued gold medal stamps for ParalympicGB winners since the movement was founded in 1948.
