Countries with no stamps issued - 2020 edition

Post by DJCMH »

And as 2019 draws to a close, time to start preparing for 2020's onslaught. As of tonight 32 countries remain without new stamp issues for 2019, but a new year brings new opportunities, and as we saw in 2019, some countries can come back from the philatelic dead after a long hiatus (St. Lucia, Comoros for example). But for now, here is the full list of all postal administrations (I hope I didn't leave anyone out, please let me know if anyone is missing) and then what I will do is once a nation has its first stamp for the year I will post it and the every couple weeks will repost the list with those having issued stamps removed. If nothing else will be some nice pictures of new stamps for people to enjoy.

I have added release dates for first stamps to be issued in January for those postal administrations I have seen information.

New Zealand usually releases their Chinese year of set in early January (A complete collectors junket, with limited edition gold sheets with 8888 on them and stuff, that the Chinese foam at the mouth over).

But they got greedy and released them on Dec 4 last year.

Normally we stop stamp issues in early November, but they did that and an ugly wallpaper sheetlet ($20 for $16 worth of postage) of Charles and Camilla.

We don't know when first 2020 issues are coming, but I guess February - NZ post is on holiday until Jan 13th (Only in our Socialist republic).

Given the situation in Iceland its not surprising their 2020 issuing programme hasn't been announced yet, however on their Facebook page they have written "There should be two issue dates in 2020, we will announce them as soon as possible." So confirmation Iceland won't be on the list of countries with no stamps released.

At this point Canada Post website does not list the Ca$1.07 value in the souvenir sheet as being available in a self-adhesive format, not clear if that is an oversight or intentional.

Interesting; that's not this year's Europa theme, so I am surprised that it is included in the reissues.

From my understanding it is not meant to be for this year's omnibus issue but rather a re-issue in new format (self adhesive) for general postal use.

Four stamps to celebrate the Year of the Rat 2020 (and to me at least one of the least flattering designs imaginable - like something out of a Stephen King novel :shock: )

I don't understand why Oman is included in this list. Oman Post has issued several new issues in 2019, even more than necessary - from my Oman collector's viewpoint.

What is the basis for this list?

Cheers, Joachim
Collecting anything related to Oman. This includes India used in Muscat and Gwadur, British overprints used in Muscat,
Muscat & Oman, Sultanate of Oman, rebel issues State of Oman & Dhufar. And also non-philatelic material!

This list is for the year 2020, hence the title of the thread. The thread for 2019 issues is located here : http://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=84937

Oman came off the 2019 list, but has not to my knowledge issued any stamps so far for the year 2020. When it does its name will be removed.
