The Birth of Mother Teresa (26th August, 1910)


Mother Teresa was an icon of compassion for the poor and underprivileged. She dedicated her entire life to love the unloved and heed the forgotten. Today on her birth anniversary, Rusted Post Box honors this humble nun for her efforts, through various stamps and coins. Cheerful in her daily life and tireless in her work, she was clearly the ideal humanitarian of the 20th century.

Rusted Post Box is a series of docudramas that relates various stamps, coins and notes to significant historic events. With the help of the newly established online museum, www.mintageworld.com, this series aims at imparting knowledge and creating interest in the areas of Philately, Numismatics and Notaphily within the general public, collectors, students and scholars alike.

Promoted by the “Ultra” group, mintageworld.com is the first website of its kind in the world, where all the three fields have been brought under one roof.
