The commemorative stamp, is a chalcography that shows the image of the statue of Philip III that is in the center of the Plaza that dates from the early seventeenth century but has been guarding the Plaza Mayor in Madrid since 1848 when Queen Elizabeth II ordered your transfer from the Casa de Campo.

The stamp appears just above the pedestal reproduced also on the block sheet.
