A poster was displayed at the Fournation Stamp Exhibition 2019 with the theme Honey Bees in Malaysia. The official notification came out today from Pos Malaysia and it will be released on 09 April 2019.
The poster featured the stamps in a Honey Comb design (hexagonal) with the Miniature Sheet featured in an awesome die cut of a honey bee. I am sure the “unusual” stamp and MS collectors will be very pleased with the design of this issue.
The poster gave information on the stamp issue as follows:
- 60 sen stamp : Giant Honey Bee (Apis dorsata)
- 60 sen stamp: Eastern Honey Bee (Apis cerana)
- 60 sen stamp: Black Dwarf Honey Bee (Apis andreniformis)
- RM 4.00 Miniature Sheet: Stingless Honey Bee (Heterotrigona itama)

This is indeed a very attractive design. Here is the price list.
