Ross Dependency (New Zealand zone of the Antarctic) 2014 cover with a Penguin cinderella, among others.

The printed envelope is embossed in gold; one of my productions.

Happy to address & send similar to anyone else who would like one
(though you would get several random Ross Dep stamps of my choice, not necessarily those used here.)

Penguins from... Belarus :lol:

On December 26 a special event cancellation was held at the Main Post Office in Minsk to commemorate opening of the Belarusian Antarctic Station. It was used on prepaid covers for inland mail specially issued on this occasion.
Unfortunately, I can't post a used cover. it's not my field of interest, and I didn't prepare any for myself. Still, I hope kennethsequeira will post his cover in some time - it's on the way to him :D

Ross Dependency (the New Zealand zone of the Antarctic) issued a nice new definitive set in 1994, and four of the stamps show penguins.

The 40c was issued a year later, after NZ Post kindly reduced the rate for standard letters within New Zealand and Ross Dependency.

Umm al Qiwain 1972 Penguins showing various penguins in the snows of distant Umm.

Now I'm sure you thought that the United Arab Emirates was a hot and dry sandy land, but judging from the photos on this set, they had a penguin population boom in their chillier regions too! :lol:

The Occussi-Ambeno economy :

Mainly subsistence fishing and dry-land rice agriculture; almost all foreign imports are prohibited, with the exception of those required by the Sultan or Sultan Muda. Per capita cash income is US$180/annum.
In fiscal year 2006 most foreign exchange was acquired through the Sultanate's Philatelic Bureau, and from exports of high quality hallucinogenic mushrooms manufactured in State-owned factories scattered throughout Okusi-Ambeno.

Income from royalties from the Sultanate's national dance, the Joget Makarina, made a significant contribution to the Royal Treasury in 2005-2006, but are expected to decline in 2007. Royalties from poetry exports are also in decline and the boom conditions of the early 90's are not expected to return until well into the new century.

Tourism continues to re-develop after the negative impact of the banning of the internal combustion engine in 1984. The Swiftair airship link between Pulau Sentosa (Singapore) and Pante-Makassar now departs three times a week. Introduction of four new Zeppelin NT in 2007 is expected to double annual tourist numbers. Two major tourist resorts are located south of the capital, at the moment catering mainly for North American tourists in search of Hot Okusi Nights. Okusi-Ambeno Passport-holders and citizens are afforded Special Privileges and Extras at both of these resorts.


I suppose that the mushrooms might enhance appreciation for the stamps.

Australian Antarctic Territory issued this pair showing penguins in 1993.

They've got King Penguins and Royal Penguins. Nowhere to be seen is the Queen Penguin. (Maybe she has abdicated, or gone fishing? :lol: )
