Updated 31 August 2013: Museums and Artifacts Issue: Stamps and Coins!


Here’s the scoop: There will be a launch of both Stamps and Coins for the 50th Celebration of the National Museum! This will be on 31 August 2013 (yup, a Public Holiday and a Saturday) at Muzium Negara, Kuala Lumpur.

I guess it will generate a lot of excitement for Numismatist! Philatelists have too much to handle on their hands while Numismatists have had a quiet start to the year thus far. Expect the usual dealers trying to secure their extra stocks. I do not expect much (or even any) sales on that day, perhaps only an official launch. It is supposed to start at 9:00 am. Expect the usual delays.

It will most likely be a next next day cover i.e. 02 September 2013 for the release to the general public. Hopefully there will be more information from Pos Malaysia nearer the issue date.

So here is the Muzium Negara poster:
