“140th Anniversary of the Universal Postal Union” International Reply Coupon
The year 2014 marks the 140 anniversary of the Universal Postal Union (UPU) since its establishment in 1874. The UPU will issue a special International Reply Coupon (IRC) to commemorate the event.
Based on the Doha IRC, this IRC features a special logo commemorating the 140th anniversary of the UPU and shows the establishment year (1874) of the UPU as well as the current year (2014) with the use of special colour-changing security ink.
The IRC will be put on sale on 9 October 2014 at HK$14 each. It will be valid for exchange of stamps for an unregistered priority item or an unregistered letter sent by air in any postal administration of the UPU up to 31 December 2017.
Interested LSOS and OMOS members can place their orders by returning the completed order form overleaf to Hongkong Post Philatelic Bureau or via Stamp OnNet (http://www.stamponnet.hongkongpost.hk) on or before 18 August 2014. The IRC will be collected together with the “Hong Kong, China – Malaysia Joint Issue on Local Food” stamp product, which will be issued on 9 October 2014.
