Both stamps contain the famous Euler's theorem for polyhedra (read more about it in Issue #7 of Magic Edges).
This is the stamp issued in Monaco in 2000. It was dedicated to the Year of mathematics. You can see the image of the dodecahedron there.
The stamp issued in Hungary in 1980 depicts Johannes Kepler, a mathematician and an astronomer, and his model of the universe based on regular polyhedra (Issue #4 of Magic Edges).
The stamp issued in Italy in 1994 is dedicated to Luca Pacioli (Issue #3 of Magic Edges). You can see a dodecahedron among various items in front of the scientist.
