What better way to commemorate a birthday than having a special edition stamp with your picture on it. And that’s exactly what Pos Malaysia intends to do for Tun Dr Mahathir.
In conjunction with the Prime Minister’s 93rd birthday, Pos Malaysia will release a set of limited edition stamps, featuring a number of designs. Each stamp has a face value of 60 sen.
Each folder would contain three Setem Ku sheets, with the stamps displaying light-hearted moments of Tun Dr Mahathir and his wife, Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali, as well as the historic moment he was sworn-in as the seventh Prime Minister of Malaysia, according to Pos Malaysia Group CEO, Al-Ishsal Ishak.
“Tun Dr Mahathir has dedicated his whole life for the betterment of the nation, and this is our way of thanking him for all his efforts and contributions to Malaysia,” he said, adding that the stamps would be available from Tuesday.
Every RM5 from the sale of the folder set would be donated to Tabung Harapan Malaysia, a trust fund set up by the government to enable Malaysians to contribute towards the repayment of the coutnry’s debts.
There will only be 100,000 pieces for each Setem Ku design, with 300,000 pieces in total, thus it’s recommended to get these collectibles before they are sold out.
The complete set can be bought at RM93 each at all general post offices and selected post offices nationwide, or alternatively, purchased online via eziEmall.com.
