About Washington Coil

In 1932, the U.S. Congress decided to release a series of stamps commemorating the 200 year anniversary of the birth of America's first president, George Washington. In total, 12 separate Washington stamps were released for coil dispensing. The Post Service initially wanted these stamps to depict critical scenes from the life of the nation's most celebrated founding father.From Washington Crossing the Delaware to the President at Home with his Wife Martha, these Washington coil stamps were to portray this great patriot with eloquence and simplicity. However, the year was 1932. The U.S. Postal Service didn't have many resources, since all extra governmental funds were being siphoned into Great Depression reparation programs. Thus, the Washington coil commemoration stamps were redesigned as simple portraits and printed in a single color.In 1932, when the stamps were first released, the famous Gilbert Stuart portrait of George Washington adorned the two cent stamp. This surprised no one, since the two cent coil stamp was the ''basic'' postal currency of the U.S. at the time (enough to send a letter domestically). When domestic rates went up to three cents the following year, the Postal Service reissued Stuart's portrait stamp as the three cent stamp of the series.The first day cover of the Washington bicentennial occurred on January 1st, 1932. Unsurprisingly, the Washington coil stamp's first city of release was Washington, D.C. One postal proposal suggested that George Washington's portrait should adorn every single stamp in the year 1932, but a more sober Congress soundly defeated this measure.
