2018 in Stamps

2018 in Stamps

2018 is here and there are a lot of events and some wonderful stamps waiting for us. StampNinja will do his best to cover all these. So, let’s take a quick look at what we can expect.

 

Events

There are really numerous events that will take place in 2018. Of course, we won’t cover all of them, but we’ll do our best, at least for these most popular.

Let’s start with a few major sports events:

 

  • Winter Olympics, 9-25 February in Pyeongchang, South Korea, and Winter Paralympics, 9-18 March in Pyeongchang, South Korea
  • Champions League final, 26 May, Kiev, Ukraine
  • Football – World Cup, 14 June – 15 July, Russia.

 

Besides that, the Royal wedding will take place on May 19.

And, of course, many traditional holidays and celebrations, from Valentine’s Day, Easter, Earth Day, Labor Day, WWII Victory Day, Eid al-Adha, Diwali, Christmas, Hanukkah, and again New Year.

We’ll also try to cover all major philatelic exhibitions and events.

 

Stamps already announced

Most posts plan almost the entire year in front so we know some stamps we can expect. Let’s name some of the most interesting by countries:

USPS will go with love stamps as well visually very attractive bioluminescent life stamps.

 

 

Royal Mail will issue some new Game of Throes stamps as early as January 23. Let’s peek a little.

 

 

Canada Post will go with interesting bees related stamps as well some sharks and astronomy stamps.

From Croatia, we can expect Silver Arrow locomotive stamp as well 8-stamp Professor Baltazar sheet.

From Denmark comes the news that Yoko Ono designed two stamps.

What to say? A lot of events are ahead of us.

 

In 2018, we’ll continue…

… bringing new, and hopefully exciting, stories to the readers. We’ll try to cover popular topics as well as more serious ones. You’ll be provided with a lot of material related to music, film, and sports but also some topics from postal history as well regular history. We’ll try to cover some of the most important historical events through stamps and go with infographics. We’ll see how that will go.

 

Collaboration

One new thing, starting this year, is a cooperation with philatelic historians, philatelists, and other stamp lovers as well other collectors. Therefore, you can expect that not only the quantity, but also the quality of the content will increase. We’ll try to cover different kinds of topics here, including serious ones. Our first guest topic is coming this Monday, so be sure not to miss it.

 

Now you can have a feeling what you can expect from us in 2018. Stay tuned because a new topic is coming soon.
