🇧🇸 The Bahamas Postal Service will issue a set of 4 stamps on 10 April 2017 as the second part of its series which commemorates the 25th anniversary of the Bahamas Marine Mammal Research Organisation. The set features local whales and was designed by Andrew Robinson and lithographed by Cartor and perforated 13.5. Another excellent issue from Creative Direction/Pobjoy Stamps. Rating:- *****.
🇲🇻 Maldives Post is said to have issued 11 "local" miniature sheets during 2016 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the country's independence. Independence Day was celebrated on 26 July 2016. I do not know the date of issue of these sheets but if they were released on Independence Day then they would have been issued while Maldives was still a member of The Commonwealth so I suppose, given their local nature, that I really ought to add them to my Commonwealth stamp collection.
