Saturday is the last day to visit MonacoPhil 2017, which opened its doors on the Terrasses de Fontvieille November 30, in the presence of Prince Abert and Jean Castellini, Minister of Finance and Economy.

Over the three-day philatelic event, the public can discover exceptional items spread across three locations, including the MonacoPhil commemorative stamps, issued by the OETP (Monegasque Office for Stamp Issues).

An exhibition of “100 iconic stamps and documents” will be held at the Musée des Timbres et des Monnaies (Stamp and Coin Museum) with items from 100 world famous collections belonging to Prince Albert II and Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, as well as from 10 postal museums and members of the Club de Monte-Carlo

At Espace Léo Ferré, there’s a commercial section with 80 stands operated by postal administrations and well known international stamp dealers.

Monaco Top Cars Collection will host an exhibition devoted to stamps of North and South America, with an unrivalled variety of international collections. At the same time, an exhibition focusing on Ferrari de La Renotière (Philipp von Ferrary) will give visitors a first glimpse of the many collections once owned by the King of Stamps.
