On 3 March 2011, the United Nations Postal Administration (UNPA) will continue its Coin and Flag series by releasing 24 new stamps in the denominations of US$ 0.44, CHF 0.85 and € 0.65. Three mini-sheets of eight stamps each will be released.

This is the fifth year of the stamp series representing the coins and flags of Member States of the United Nations. The series is expected to run for approximately eight years until stamps representing all 192 Member States are issued.
