SingPost launched the Butterflies stamp series on Apr 21 2010. This series of stamps consists of four exquisite local butterfly – The Common Birdwing, The Blue Glassy Tiger, The Common Posy and The Tailed Jay.
The stamp collection is the result of collaboration between SingPost and and Nature Society (Singapore) Butterfly Interest Group. Simon and I started working with SingPost on this series in late 2008 and after more than a year, the butterfly stamp series is finally available to the public. Apart from the stamps, SingPost also released Pre-cancelled First Day Cover, Presentation Pack and Self-Adhesive Stamp Booklet. In addition, SingPost also released a special promotional bundle which consists of Butterflies First-Day Cover, presentation Pack and NSS’s Butterfly Field Guide.
Priced at S$15.00, it is on sale at four selected Post Offices namely Singapore Post Centre, Tanglin, Toa Payoh Central and Changi Airport.
Yesterday, Clement from SingPost personally delivered complimentary copy of the stamps to us. We had a pleasant surprise when he handed us a framed copy of the First Day Cover with Pre-cancelled stamps.
