The Postal Service issued an 11.75-dollar Space Achievement and Exploration souvenir sheet featuring a circular commemorative stamp, the first ever issued by the U.S. Postal Service, in Anaheim, California, on July 7, 2000. The stamp was designed by Richard Sheaff of Scottsdale, Arizona, and based on NASA reference material.
This Express Mail stamp features a hologram of the Earth, another first for the U.S. Postal Service. The text encircling the stamp reads "Space Achievement and Exploration" and "World Stamp Expo 2000." This stamp was the first issued in the Space Achievement and Exploration Commemorative Series and was the first to be unveiled at the World Stamp Expo 2000 in honor of America's space program.
