New stamp series celebrates Putrajaya’s silver jubilee


Pos Malaysia’s new stamp series features five landmarks in Putrajaya, namely Perdana Putra, Palace of Justice, Masjid Tuanku Mizal Zainal Abidin (Masjid Besi), Putrajaya Corporation Complex and the Seri Gemilang Bridge.

THE “Iconic Buildings of Putrajaya” stamp series is now available for purchase.

The stamp series was launched by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin on Aug 28 in conjunction with the federal administrative capital’s 25th anniversary.

Founded in 1995, Putrajaya has several iconic buildings that are famous for their unique designs.

The series offers five landmarks in the city --- Perdana Putra, Palace of Justice, Masjid Tuanku Mizal Zainal Abidin (Masjid Besi), Putrajaya Corporation Complex and the Seri Gemilang Bridge.

Pos Malaysia group marketing head Schrene Goh said Putrajaya was a symbol of the nation and had captured global attention.

“The administrative capital showcases many buildings featuring Islamic, European and traditional Malay architecture.

“This has inspired the collaboration between Pos Malaysia and Putrajaya Corporation to create the Iconic Buildings of Putrajaya special stamp series in conjunction with the city’s 25th anniversary.”

Pos Malaysia has produced 250,000 pieces for each stamp design, carrying a denomination of RM1.30 each.

Other philatelic products such as the first day cover and folder are priced at 50sen and RM6 each, respectively.

Stamp collectors may obtain the whole set at RM26.

The cancellation mark for the series features the outline of Putrajaya Corporation Complex with the Aug 29 launch date.

Collectors may sign up for the standing order deposit account to experience a hassle-free process in buying the latest stamp issues as well as enjoying exclusive benefits.
