On 9 of June 2012 Post Authority of Congo  issued 5 mini-sheets and a set of 4 stamps depicted some dinosaurs. Each stamp has a face value of CDF 550 (Euro 0.50 about). In fact average income pro person (GDP pro capita) in the country is about EURO 270 stamp price of Euro 0.50 to be too expensive to be really use for post pupose.

Just to compare:  average income pro person (GDP pro capita) of  Germany is about EURO 30,000, but face values of stamps is between EURO 0.55 and EURO 2.60.  When the stamps of Germany would be issued in the proportion to GDP pro capita as the stamps of Congo it will have a face value of EURO 55 !

 You can see the flood of minisheets  of the country on  PostBeeld or Neofila sites
