Ukrainian Philatelic and Numismatic Society

Promoting Ukrainian stamps, coins and other collectibles

Ukrainian Collectibles Society of Australia

Australian-Ukrainian Heritage Personalised Stamp No.3/4

What is planned to be issued?

  • An official Australia Post Personalised Stamp™ with a label depicting an organisations’ logo.
  • A souvenir commemorative envelope with descriptive text in two languages on the back.

UCS will invite all major national and state Ukrainian organisations to participate in this project but this will depend on whether specific organisations wish to be a part of the project. On this basis it is unclear exactly how many issues there will be or how long the project will run.  UCS plans to issue 2 separate issues at least three times a year depending upon the responses from organisations and other administrative issues.

The first issues were released on 1 November 2010. They were dedicated to the Australian Federation of Ukrainian Organisations and the Ukrainian Youth Association CYM .
