One of the memorable moments depicted on the stamps is the Brit Awards in 1997. The Spice Girls won three awards, including Best British Single, for their hit song Wannabe. This recognition underscores the band's enormous contribution to music history and its popularity among fans.

In addition, the series also reflects the unforgettable performance of the Spice Girls at the closing ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics. The band impressed the audience with an enchanting show and performance of their hits, reminding of their appeal and importance in the world of music.

It should be recalled that the Spice Girls appeared in the mid-1990s. According to the plan of the producers, it was a female alternative to popular boy bands at the time, such as Take That and East 17. Each of the participants had to embody a certain quality. This is how the nicknames "Ruda", "Sportyvna", "Gorgeous", "Strict" and "Baby" appeared.

Gerry Galliwell, Melanie Chisholm, Victoria Adams (now Beckham), Melanie Brown and Emma Bunton were selected from around 400 contestants.

This stamp collection is not only a means to celebrate the talent and achievements of the Spice Girls, but also to honor the influence they had on generations of fans and pop music in general. The stamps will go on sale on January 11.

The Spice Girls are the sixth musical group to be dedicated to a series of stamps by Royal Mail. They were followed by The Beatles in 2007, Pink Floyd in 2016, Queen in 2020, The Rolling Stones in 2022 and Iron Maiden in 2023.
