Malaysia stamp issue 2015: 150th Anniversary of International Telecommunication Union (C)
Here comes another commemorative stamp issue from Pos Malaysia, 150th Anniversary of International Telecommunication Union, that is going to be issued this.. Sunday! (May 17, 2015)
May 17, 2015 marks the 150th anniversary of the International Telecommunication Union since its creation in Paris in 1865. ITU’s 150th Anniversary celebrations will be held on 17 May 2015 in Geneva at the Centre International de Conférence Genève.
The Date of Sale would technically be on May 18, 2015, unless Pos Malaysia miraculously opened on Sunday just for the commemorative issue. There will only be stamps and first day cover on this issue, miniature sheet is not available.
The stamp designs, valued at 60 sen, 70 sen and 80 sen are quite unique. As usual, there are 20 stamps per sheet like the one shown below.
I believe this will sell off really quick like the Penny Black issue, so you guys better get ready on Monday to get yours. Check out this First.. I mean ‘Next’ Day Cover design.
