We issue a new stamp that pays homage to Xacobeo 21-22 . The stamp belongs to the Numismatic series, whose stamps reproduce a coin, usually commemorative, that has been issued by the Fábrica Nacional de Moneda y Timbre.
The coin that appears on this stamp has a face value of 30 euros . On the obverse appears the effigy of Their Majesties the Kings of Spain and on the reverse an allegorical image of the Camino with a pilgrim and the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela . The stamp issued for the occasion reproduces the reverse of it.
The Compostelan Holy Year is a moment of great importance for believers and non-believers being the highlight of everything that the Camino de Santiago itself represents. Its origin dates back to the late medieval era, when it was established that the Compostelan Holy Year would be the one in which July 25 (feast of the Apostle Santiago) corresponds to a Sunday . This fact happens a total of 14 times every century.
The Xacobeo 21-22 represents the great cultural, social and tourist dynamization that is generated around an event of this magnitude, considering itself as a great opportunity to materialize and disseminate the noble values of the Camino de Santiago, also promoting its role as a regenerating factor of the territory. It should be noted that the Jacobean Year 21-22 is typified as an event of exceptional public interest .
The Compostelan Jubilee Year has a duration of twelve months, opening on December 31 of the previous year with the opening of the Holy Door and extending during the following twelve months. This period represents an opportunity for spiritual renewal and purification.
On this occasion, there is an exception, since the Xacobeo year will extend throughout 2021 and 2022, due to the global pandemic caused by COVID 19. This particularity also occurred during the Spanish Civil War.
