Stamps featuring Butterflies 2006 0703
The Philippine Postal Corporation will continue its Philippine butterflies definitive series with new stamps dated “2006”.
Due to the increase in local postage rates starting January 16, 2006, there is a huge demand for P1.00 and P5.00 stamps. To cope with this demand, these two values have to be ordered from a different printer.
The same butterflies are featured, but the stamps came out very different from printings made by the regular printer. A blue security band is printed below the design, and there are white borders around the stamps.
Stamps and Official First Day Covers will be available starting 3 July 2006 at the Philatelic Service, Door 203, Liwasang Bonifacio, 1000 Manila and all Regional Offices of the Philippine Postal Corporation.
