1875. ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡พ Cyprus’ Cute Seal Pup Steals The 2021 Europa Show.


๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡พ Cyprus Post will issue a pair of stamps each printed in sheetlets of eight plus a booklet of 8 stamps (4 of each stamp se-tenant) on 6 May 2021 as its contribution to the EUROPA omnibus of 2021 which is on the subject of endangered local wildlife. The 64c value depicts a delightful portrait of a seal pup which must be the most appealing stamp of 2021 so far. An excellent issue. Rating:- *****.

๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฟ New Zealand Post will issue a set of 4 stamps and 1 miniature sheet containing all 4 stamps to commemorate Matariki, the Maori new year, on 7 July 2022. The stamps depict Whฤnau Mฤrama, the Family of Light (the sun, moon and the Pleiades star cluster). The colourful issue was designed by Dave Burke and lithographed by Southern Colour Print. Rating:- *****.
