Malaysia Stamp Issue 2015: Coronation of KDYMM Sultan Johor (C)

Hello everyone, the Coronation of KDYMM Sultan Johor is the second commemorative stamps issued by Pos Malaysia. The stamps will be on sale on all post offices nationwide starting from March 24, 2014.

At first, I didn’t really wanted to buy the series, but the beautiful postmark caught me off guard. I will get a few stamps for my penpal/postcrossing friends tomorrow, because I’m saving more of my funds for the next special issue on April.

The commemorative issue consists of three individual designs stamps featuring the portrait of His Royal Highness. Each designs are valued at 60sen, 80sen and RM1 respectively on a sheet of 16 stamps each.

The miniature sheet will feature portrait of His and Her Royal Highnesses the Sultan and the Sultanah of Johor, measuring 100mm x 90mm with a stamp measuring 40mm x 52mm in size, and valued at RM5 each.

Special technique using gloss varnish is applied on the crest in the miniature sheet to add extra shine and depth to it. I bet its gonna look shiny and embossed on the crest.
