Next issue: 09 April 2019 Honey Bees in Malaysia

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:

  1. 60 sen stamp : Giant Honey Bee (Apis dorsata)
  2. 60 sen stamp: Eastern Honey Bee (Apis cerana)
  3. 60 sen stamp: Black Dwarf Honey Bee (Apis andreniformis)
  4. RM 4.00 Miniature Sheet: Stingless Honey Bee (Heterotrigona itama)
  5. 50 sen empty envelope featuring the Stingless Honey Bee Hive
  6. RM 6.00 empty folder

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

28 November 2018: ETS MS Overprint for Thailand World Stamp Exhibition 2018

28 November 2018: ETS MS Overprint for Thailand World Stamp Exhibition 2018

Pos Malaysia will be represented by Philatelic Society of Malaysia (PSM) for the World Stamp Exhibiton in Bangkok, Thailand. The event is held in Royal Paragon Hall 1 – 3 in downtown Bangkok. It runs from 28 November 2018 until 03 December 2018. Thailand Post is providing an exhibition cachet and daily cancellations. These are the current image available and subjected to changes.

Pos Malaysia is expected to have the exhibition cachet to complement the Exhibition Overprint MS of the ETS issue.

PSM will be selling their own envelope. There is also a proposal to pre-sell the envelope during the Stamp Week 2018. Why not drop by and have a look during Stamp Week at the PSM booth?

Here is the image with the consent to share by PSM (copyright holder of the envelope design).

The overprint MS is also expected to be on sale by the International House of Stamps in the exhibition hall.

While Pos Malaysia has not provided information on the order forms for SODA, it has been a trend that Pos Malaysia offers the overprints AFTER the exhibitions.

Updated 12 November 2018:

Philatelic Society of Malaysia was selling the blank envelopes at RM 2.00 each at the Stamp Week 2018 in their counter in the Kuala Lumpur General Post Office.

Updated 26 November 2018:

If you are interested in the Thailand 2018 commemorative stamps, you can read them at the Thailand Post Stamp Catalogue (October – December 2018): http://www.mbookstore.com/book-read/10412 (pages 6 – 7).

Any readers who is visiting, I appreciate it if you can also send back news and maybe a few pictures for the readers.

I will not be attending.
