Born in Philadelphia, Grace Kelly (1929-82) became one of Hollywood’s brightest stars. Although she has appeared on several stamps of Monaco, this was the first time Grace Kelly was honored on a U.S. postage stamp.
Known for her classic beauty, Kelly enchanted the American public when she gave up her glamourous movie star career to marry Prince Rainier of Monaco.
Based on a publicity portrait taken for her 1954 film "Country Girl," this stamp was engraved by the world-renowned Czslaw Slania, and was a joint issue by the U.S. and Monaco.
