Good news from Moldova, the most recent country to issue a Postcrossing-themed stamp!
Isn’t it a cute one? We love how the postcards zoom all around the world, taking a happy Moldovan postcrosser with them.
The stamp was drawn by Lilian Iaţco, and 120,000 stamps have been printed, as well as postcards and first-day covers to mark the occasion. Sadly, we believe these will only be available in local post offices for now, as Moldova Post doesn’t have a philatelic online shop yet.
As is becoming a tradition, a meetup is taking place today to celebrate the launch of the stamp and use the cancellation mark made for the occasion. The event will take place in Chisinau’s Central Post Office, which might be familiar to some from last year’s event that brought together Moldovan and Romanian postcrossers.
We look forward to seeing this new stamp make its way around the world on many future postcards!
