Hi members of 2020 Year of Rat Stamp of Postcard Exchange Group, I received an u2u in September 2020 from Byobu (USA) if I am going to coordinate this group again for Year of Ox.

At first, I thought it will be messy with postal restrictions around the world due to Covid 19 pandemic. But then, we must not give up and challenge ourselves to be safe and yet continue this wonderful hobby that brings so much joy to us and others receiving our postcards.

So here we go. Please feel to post. Will finalize what is possible and what is not as we go along.

Same rule to allow those who participated last year to represent their country of choice first and then open to others.

Note: This exchange group is only for countries that issue 2021 Year of Ox stamps. Participants will send out postcards using Year of Ox stamp/s to everyone else in the group. In the past, the number of countries participating is around 20 and so you must be prepared to send around this number of postcards out and receive same number in return.

*Poland is new country added. Last year, both hazelyc and SLLiew completed direct swaps of Year of Rat with kover.
*Puiduii is joining us this year, replacing SLLiew for Thailand
*Marie Mcdonnell is a well known postcard swapper via FB and highly recommended by SL Liew. UPDATE: Marie McDonnell postcrossing userid: marie65

  • -C- is active in postcrossing official for Estonia, so SLLiew invited her -C- is Carmen Allick
  • New address for South Korea and Australia
  1. Why I represent Malaysia this coming year and not Thailand?

Per Malaysia Covid-19 movement order since March 18, 2020 and at the moment extended to December 31, 2020, ordinary Malaysians are not allowed to travel to Thailand or overseas unless with special preapproved important reasons.

In the past, I used to enjoy to travel to Thailand on every January 2 and send out postcards with Thailand lunar animal stamp.

But until further notice, I can only represent Malaysia. Should restriction be lifted later and I can travel Thailand again, then I will take up Thailand and open Malaysia to Matthew07.

(UPDATE: Confirmed no further change. I am representing Malaysia and PuiDuii is representing Thailand)

  1. Stamp Images Update:
    If you have a new or better stamp link, please post in the forum and I will add it here - thanks.

Countries not in this group - just for viewing the different ox stamps:
Jersey


Guernsey

Armenia

Vietnam

Thailand

From Mosshumla:

Great! There will be a new exchange, and I will of course participate, representing Åland.

Ålands stamps will be issued soon, 23. 10. 2020
There will be a lovely minisheet with 2 stamps, and 2 maxicards:
Maxicard 1
Maxicard 2

You may choose whether you’d like to receive

  • one of the maxicards (which one?)
  • both stamps on a standard size postcard (I have two photo postcards depicting cows, lots of illustrated cow cards from children’s books, or can choose another card according to your wishlist)
  • an oversized postcard with the minisheet (I have one large cow photo postcard)
  • a large size cover with the minisheet

As Åland Post isn’t sending to most of the countries outside Europe for now, I won’t be able to send the cards soon. So there is no need to hurry with sending the addresses, SLLiew!
Nevertheless it would be good, if you choose what to receive soonish, so that I know what to order.

Stamps will be issued on 28 Jan in HK :slight_smile:

I can send postcards or cover with stamps and prepaid fold cards issued by HK Post. For prepaid fold cards, there will be no real stamps. And the cards are larger than a standard postcard. Please let me know which one you prefer and I will order them. If you want a specific postcard from HK, you can tell me and I will try to send it.

Or

  1. The $1.40 Year of the Ox Stamp for 2020 plus
    a $1.30 Random Chinese New Year stamp from the 2020 sheet that I can hopefully show below.

I currently have 2 of all 12 Chinese New Year stamps, first in gets to choose which one they want

Please let me know your preference. If I have not heard by Dec 2nd then I will be using the $2.70 stamp. All stamps will have the FDI cancellation.

I will be sending a scenic NZ postcard that does have some cows on it

Update from Macau (as of today 2020/11/20):

  1. Release date - to be announced, usually in January
  2. Can I go to Macau - unlikely in January
  3. Can I still order stamp - will probably get it online
  4. When will I send the postcards - the border may be opened in Q2 2021. If no update, will try to contact friend in Macau to help sending the cards after getting the stamps.
