The commemorative stamp

It features an image in silver duotone with the words "Long Walk" in the date canceller, in reference to his 1995 autobiography.

Around 5m copies of the stamp have been printed, making them unsuitable for investment as a large number of buyers are likely to hold on to them.

However, their popularity is testament to Mandela's incredible influence.
