COVID-19 Solidarity

Joining forces for Switzerland. Help us to help others!
The “COVID-19 Solidarity” stamp reflects Swiss Post's commitment to the cohesion of our society. Proceeds will go to Swiss Solidarity and the Swiss Red Cross. It is a way for you to support those in urgent need of help.

Every day, countless staff at Swiss Post work to ensure the provision of essential services. Swiss Post is issuing a stamp to promote solidarity during the coronavirus crisis. All proceeds from sales of the stamps will be split between Swiss Solidarity and the Swiss Red Cross.

The stamp was created at very short notice and designed by Berne-based studio Nulleins Kommunikationsdesign. The graphic design professionals designed the stamp at a safe distance from their home offices.

The stamp symbolizes solidarity during the coronavirus pandemic: with Switzerland at the center, while the rotated cross reveals a shining globe.

It will only cost the surcharge of 500 cents per stamp, while Swiss Post will bear the face value of 100 cents.

Help us to help others! By purchasing these stamps, you are showing solidarity together with Swiss Post: you donate 50 francs, while Swiss Post gives you stamps worth 10 francs.

The stamps are available as a 10-stamp sheet for 50 francs at postshop.ch or can be ordered via the telephone number: 0848 66 55 44.
