07 May 2019 Latest updated Malaysia Stamp Issue Programme Schedule

Here is the latest Malaysia Stamp Issue Programme Schedule dated 07 May 2019. Do remember to update your calendar. Information is always confirmed nearer the date of issue.

Relax and just open a SODA account. Most collectors are non-concordanist, thus there is very little planning required other than to know when to show up if you prefer to do your own, OR open a Standing Order Deposit Account (SODA) which is an easier way not to miss a single issue.

24 April 2019: Updated Malaysia Stamp Issue Programme Schedule

24 April 2019: Updated Malaysia Stamp Issue Programme Schedule

Well, finally, this is what you have been waiting for, the updated stamp programme:

With that is the confirmation that the Places of Worship Series 2 will be on sale on Monday, 13 May 2019. Stay tuned for more information nearer the date of issue.

The schedule now shows the 150 Years of Sarawak Stamps. It should be an interesting issue. It seems that Combating Wildlife Cybercrime has changed to Conservation of Wildlife.

Noticeable not in the schedule are the Seashell, Wild Flowers, Dying Trade, Folk Tales and Parrot! However an interesting Joint Issue with Romania is in the cards! We have not had a joint issue in quite a while.

Meanwhile it is time to update your own calendar. Remember the operative word is: Tentative!

What do you think of the new schedule?

10 sen Federal Territory Garden Flowers Definitive

10 sen Federal Territory Garden Flowers Definitive

The latest Definitive to make an appearance is the Federal Territory Garden Flowers 10 sen. It was sold sometime last week in the Kuala Lumpur General Post Office. The earliest known release was reported in Johor in mid March 2019. I finally got my hands on it. Here is the counter full sheets of 100s:

The stamp continued the use of the micro-text printing.

Here is the transition from Agro Definitive to Garden Flowers Definitive:

Thus the current line-up of the FIRST imprint of the Federal Territory Garden Flowers are 10 sen, 20 sen, 30 sen and 50 sen.

Question: Have you seen any imprint later than 2018/1 of the 10 sen Agro Definitive?
