Malaysia stamp issue 2015: Installation of Paduka Seri Sultan Perak XXXV Sultan Nazrin Muizzuddin Shah (C)
Took me a while to post this update, this is the first time where I make a blog entry after I bought the special/commemorative stamps. The commemorative issue of the Installation of Paduka Seri Sultan Perak XXXV Sultan Nazrin Muizzuddin Shah, was issued on May 6, 2015 and start to be on sale in post offices nationwide starting May 7, 2015.
Pos Malaysia has stated that this is the first time they used golden ink for the frames and lettering in the stamps. The stamps comes in 60 sen, 80 sen and RM1.20 value, each with its own unique portraits of DYMM Sultan Perak and DYMM Raja Permaisuri Perak.
The miniature sheet, valued at RM5.00 is coated with a varnish luster, as mentioned by Pos Malaysia.
The First Day Cover is one of my favourites so far too, the colour and designs really pops out for me.
Meanwhile, I completed, or should I say there is no more room to stamp on for my postmark collection.
I already prepared a new batch for upcoming special/commemorative issues this year. I would go for sending or swapping with postcrossing friends by the end of the year, one of the reasons I made this in large quantity.
That reminds me, the next special stamp issue date falls on Sunday this week.
