Hongkong Post announced today (May 21) that a new set of special stamps on the theme "Heartwarming", together with a special stamp issue of "Stamp Sheetlet to Commemorate Hongkong Post's Participation in the CHINA 2019 World Stamp Exhibition", will be released for sale on June 11 (Tuesday).
The new set of "Heartwarming" stamps features six stamp designs, four for local mail postage and two for air mail postage. A local mail postage stamp is valid for a local small letter weighing 30 grams or less whereas an air mail postage stamp can be used to send a small letter by air mail weighing 20 grams or less to any place around the world. The Customised Service for Heartwarming Stamps is also available for tagging personalised photos or images to customised mini-panes. These stamps are ideal choices for celebrating joyous occasions by mail.
Separately, the China 2019 World Stamp Exhibition will be held in Wuhan, Hubei, from June 11 to 17 in celebration of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China and promotion of postal and philatelic development. Hongkong Post will issue a stamp sheetlet to commemorate its participation in this spectacular event. The stamp sheetlet will present the exhibition logo featuring a stylised carrier pigeon outlined with stamp perforations and Wuhan's iconic Yellow Crane Tower, together with colourful silhouettes of landmarks of Hong Kong and Wuhan to signify the philatelic interaction of the two cities.
Information about the two special stamp issues and associated philatelic products is available on the Hongkong Post website at www.hongkongpost.hk and via the Hongkong Post mobile app.
