Forthcoming stamp issues from Singapore

April 1st, 2011

The next stamp issue will be the low value definitives titled “A Pond Life” to be released on 13 April 2011. Details in a previous post here.

Hawker Centres of Singapore will be featured in a four value stamps set to be issued 18 May 2011. This has got to be one of the worst Singapore stamp designs ever!

June 3, 2011 will see the release of an Endangered Animal issue featuring the Oriental Small-Clawed Otter.

This is a beautiful set and is sure to sure to be a winner as the designer happens to be popular local TV artiste Edmund Chen. Singapore Post seems to be cashing in on this fact and the recent hype about biodiversity.

A special serialised collector’s sheet will be sold at S$88 and those with “golden numbers” will be sold at S$168!

Thumbs up for the stamps but thumbs down for the price of the collector’s sheet.

Singapore Post’s participation in PhilaNippon 2011 in July will be commemorated with a special miniature sheet. The Japan World Stamp Exhibition, held once every 10 years, will run from 28 July 2011 to 2 August 2011.
