Xth Anniversary of Libyan Independence.


The three stamps on this cover were issued by Libya on 24th December 1961 to commemorate the Xth Anniversary of Libyan Independence.
The Kingdom of Libya, originally called the United Libyan Kingdom, came into existence upon independence on 24 December 1951 and lasted until a coup d'├ętat led by Muammar Gaddafi on 1 September 1969 overthrew King Idris of Libya and established the Libyan Arab Republic.
Thank you Maria for this nice FDC.
