Hongkong Post to issue "China's Aerospace Development" special stamps

2022.04.04

Hongkong Post announced today (April 4) that the stamp sheetlet and associated philatelic products on the theme of "China's Aerospace Development" will be released for sale on April 21.

Aerospace is one of the most challenging fields in the development of high technology. The Central Government has designated April 24 as the Space Day of China since 2016 for passing on the spirit of aerospace, cultivating a culture of innovation and promoting openness and sharing. Hongkong Post is issuing a stamp sheetlet and a presentation pack with the theme "China's Aerospace Development" to commemorate the great achievements of the nation in its aerospace development.

The design of "China's Aerospace Development" stamp sheetlet is ingenious. The oval stamp sheetlet contains two $10 stamps with shiny holographic foil printing, complementing the movement of stars in space, and illustrating the milestones of the nation's aerospace development from 1970 to the present.

Official First Day Covers for "China's Aerospace Development" are put on sale at all post offices from today, and on Hongkong Post's online shopping mall "ShopThruPost" (shopthrupost.hongkongpost.hk). The stamp sheetlet and associated philatelic products will be on sale at all post offices and "ShopThruPost" from April 21, while serviced first day covers affixed with stamp sheetlet are available at philatelic offices only.

A hand-back date-stamping service will be provided on April 21 at all post offices for Official First Day Covers/ souvenir covers/ privately made covers bearing the first day of issue indication and a local address. To avoid people gathering at the post offices and to observe social distancing, collection points will be set up at all post offices on the same day for submission of the covers requesting hand-back date-stamping service. Customers will be advised on the collection schedule upon acceptance of the covers.

Information about the stamp sheetlet and associated philatelic products is available on the Hongkong Post Stamps website (stamps.hongkongpost.hk) and the "ShopThruPost" mobile app.
