The United States Postal Service unveiled a new stamp that honors late President George H.W. Bush.
In a news release, the USPS said the stamp is a portrait of Bush, which was painted by Michael J. Deas, and is based on a 1997 photograph taken by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders.
A first-day-of-issue ceremony will be held on June 12, which also happens to be the late president's birthday, the news release said.
The stamp was made available for pre-order on April 6 but will be made available after the June 12 ceremony.
"The stamp is being issued as a Forever stamp, which will always be equal in value to the current First-Class Mail 1-ounce price," officials said via a news release.
Bush died in November at the age of 94.
