As Hari Raya Aidilfitri is less than a week away, over the weekend Pos Malaysia launched a limited edition stamp collection featuring a combination of Islamic arabesque art elements and kufic (ancient arabic) calligraphy.
Pos Malaysia’s Hari Raya Aidilfitri 2020 limited edition stamp collection designs symbolise multiple positive nouns relevant to the unprecedented circumstances this year. Those nouns are the essence and values of the festivity such as celebrating “Victory” in overcoming the challenges of Ramadan, “Gratitude” for all the blessings received during the holy month and “Sincerity” which promotes the honesty of an individual’s mind and actions.
“It will be a different Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebration for everyone this year, but that does not mean that the spirit of the celebration will be lesser than previous years,” said Pos Malaysia’s Group Chief Executive Officer, Syed Md Najib Syed Md Nor. “The new Hari Raya Aidilfitri stamp collection will be one of the significant reminders of our Victory against this calamity, Gratitude for our safety and good health and Sincerity in ensuring the well being of everyone around us.”
The stamps can be purchased through Pos Malaysia’s online store and is priced at RM25.00 per sheet with a denomination of RM0.60 per stamp. It will also be available at 13 General Post Offices nationwide beginning 18 May 2020.
However, since only 1,000 pieces of stamps will be produced for this series, those interested (especially avid stamp collectors and enthusiasts) should be quick in ordering them.
Ps: Pos Malaysia reminds all customers to post their Pos Laju items and mail by 18 May 2020 and Hari Raya Greeting cards by 20 May 2020 to ensure delivery before Hari Raya Aidilfitri.
