Royal Mail goes for the gold

In honor of Great Britain’s gold medals in the London Olympics, Royal Mail has agreed to paint a postbox gold – one for each gold medal win! What a stunning idea!

So, which postboxes are going gold? Well, they’re placing them in the hometowns or boroughs of the gold medalists where possible. Here’s the complete list of gold postbox locations. And hopefully, they will be adding more following the Paralympic Games, if Britain adds to its collection.

In addition, Royal Mail has painted a gold postbox near Westminster Abbey. Lovely!
