Maybe you wonder about those Pantone-like stamps. I sent some more:
They belong to a campaign against racial discrimination. In May 2021, Correos launched Equality Stamps to reflect "an unjust reality that should not exist, in an effort to raise awareness of diversity, inclusion and equal rights". (See the video here).
The idea behind is that you must used more black stamps than "white" ones. But what the users read was: the darker the colour, the smaller the face value. The campaign received a lot of criticism, and the stamps were withdrawn from the market almost immediately.

The stamps were issued in 1998 under the title Celebrate the Century. Ten sheets of fifteen different stamps were issues, which each sheet depicting events of one decade of the 20th century, from the 1900s to 1990s. You find here the complete list of stamps.
I have got just a sample of these:

Letter sent to Alan (the UK). The stamp belongs to the series of museums, and features the Museo Postal y Telegráfico ('Postal and Telegraphic Museum') in Madrid. I collaged part of the 9-stamps sheet (see below) on the envelope.
