To commemorate the upcoming Total Solar Eclipse of 2017, limited-edition USPS stamps are being launched. While there are many collectible stamps that are launched to mark various holidays and events, this one boasts an interactive feature that makes it especially noteworthy.

The Total Eclipse of the Sun Forever stamps include an all-black circle that responds to the heat of a finger to reveal a full moon. Those who are interested in sharing the news about the special USPS stamps are being asked to share on social media using the #EclipseStamps hashtag.

It has become a challenge for mints and postal services to make collectible items like coins and stamps appealing to younger generations, but the inclusion of interactive features adds value to these kinds of keepsakes.
