🇻🇺 Vanuatu Post issued an excellent set of 4 stamps on 11 December 2019 on the subject of local birds of prey. These are straightforward stamps of local relevance with excellent artistic depictions of the various birds. Rating:- *****.
🇧🇼 I have not yet noted here that the miniature sheet issued by Botswana Post on 9 October 2019 on the subject of Cranes of Botswana was released in two forms, one of them having additional inscriptions at the bottom of the sheet. The issue was released on 9 October 2019 tied to the fact that the date was World Post Day.
As the year draws to a close with just a week to go before we arrive in 2020, there are still a number of Commonwealth philatelic entities which have not yet, as far as is known, issued any postage stamps. In all 12 ‘countries’ appear to have not released any issues and I additionally note that Gibraltar Swiss Post does not seem to have added any new stamps to its original issue covered previously in Commonwealth Stamps Opinion.
British Virgin Islands
Gibraltar (Swiss Post)
Turks And Caicos Islands
🇭🇰 I have not yet noted that Hong Kong Post introduced a new series of ATM (Automatic Teller Machine) stamps in 2018 an example of which is depicted below. Three machines were installed initially experimentally - in the General Post Office (PGP01), at Tsim Tsa Shui (PTST01) and at Yuen Long (PYLG01).
