£2.25 Plum Purple Machin definitive original issue date 24 March 2015 - from counter sheets, year code M15L, source code MAIL, made available 20 March 2018
Reprinted by De La Rue in 2016 with M16L code.

The airmail tariff (Worldwide letters 20-100g) for this value was not increased in 2016 so it is not surprising that a reprint was needed. The rate was increased in 2017 to £2.27, but reduced again on 26 March 2018 to £2.25 and so the obsolescent stamp was brought back into use.
Printed on 15/01/18 with year code M18L. The phosphor glows blue.
