The series dedicated to the Stamp and Coin Museum, which will soon open, pays homage to the Coat of Arms of the Republic. The first value reproduces the logo of the Museum and one of the first issues of San Marino: the 1-lira stamp, issued on 10th July 1892, known as the red lyre. A sheet of the red lyre, undamaged and very rare, will be at the Museum. The second value shows the logo of the Museum and the first 1-euro coin, issued in 2002.

The Coin and Stamp Museum houses a collection of coins, including the scudi, and stamps issued by the Republic since the mid 19th C. It is housed in the church at Borgo Maggiore.

NOTE: As of the time of writing (12 November 2020), the Poste San Marino website pictures only one of the two stamps described above.
