🇦🇺 In Blog 1697 I mentioned that Australia Post has released another long list of new issues for the upcoming two months. Here are the details:-

27 July 2020 - The Australian Alps - 3 gummed stamps, 3 self-adhesive stamps from coils (sold in rolls of 100 of which there are said to have been only 4000 produced (a so-called limited edition) which actually ensures that there are 133333 sets available - that ought to be quite enough to go around) and 1 miniature sheet. Designed by Sharon Rodziewicz and lithographed by RA Printing and perforated 14 x 14.5. Rating;- *.













4 August 2020 - Stamp Collecting Month, Wildlife recovery after 2019 fires - 6 gummed stamps and 1 miniature sheet and 5 self-adhesive stamps from booklets. Designed by Jo Muré and lithographed by EGO and perforated 14 x 14.5. Rating;- ***.

  IIt does not seem that there are any new My Stamps packs this time. Perhaps the Coronavirus pandemic has made it difficult to produce such additional items. I doubt that any serious collectors will miss them.
