POS Malaysia Bhd issued another stamp collection entitled “Malaysian Calligraphy Series 2”. This collection will be available to collectors and stamp enthusiasts today across post offices nationwide.

Calligraphy is an ancient visual art and the oldest form of communication that is still widely used in the world today. Malaysia, as a multiracial and multicultural country, is blessed to have both modern and classical calligraphies from different scriptures including Jawi, Tamil and Chinese.

Pos Malaysia group CEO Syed Md Najib Syed Md Noor said: “Pos Malaysia is honoured to issue the second series of the Malaysian Calligraphy stamp collection with three stamp designs featuring Jawi, Tamil and Chinese calligraphic art designed around the theme of ‘Peace, Prosperity and Happiness’. All three designs are presented together to show the multicultural and multiracial aspects of Malaysia, which is something that we Malaysians are proud of.”

Pos Malaysia is producing a total of 800,000 pieces of the stamps in 60 sen, 80 sen and RM1 denominations for this collection.

Together with the issue, Pos Malaysia is also issuing a special miniature sheet (MS) featuring the combination of all three calligraphies.

Only 30,000 copies of MS are being produced and are available for purchase at RM3 apiece.
