Like the year before with the ONDA ATM, in this case it was the City council of Calpe who promoted the issue of this commemorative stamp showing the Ifach's Rock, tourist highlight of this locality and beautiful natural profile known anywhere in the world. 

The manufacture of the 100.000 labels was paid totally by the City council of the locality, and they were used basically in the Calpe Post office

There exists two printing varieties corresponding to the 2 models of franking balances used in the post office during the period of use ; 

  • EPELSA ET-CB, 4 digits (balance nr. 0158 ).
  • EPELSA ET-RL/IRIS, 5 digits small (balances nr. 4367 and 4470).
There exist also ATMs with the machine number 1742 (EPELSA 4 digits), corresponding to the Main Post office of Madrid - Philatelic Service.
The Philatelic Club of Calpe edited a commemorative first day cover.
