New Issues 2009 (July
This page collects only issues released during the
year 2009, period July to September.
As it is not such obvious as it looks to find this
information, this list is probably not yet complete. In certain
countries, joint issues are often announced on the day of the issue
and sometimes it takes months before this information and the corresponding
stamps reach us. Data on missing issues or supplementary information,
particularly for countries, which are producing joint issues exceptionally,
will be highly appreciated.

in Australia. This explains why this issue is ranked as Siamese
issue and not as a Territorial (siamese) issue. On top of this,
the miniature sheet contains 4 Australian stamps and the Norfolk
stamp, which makes this miniature sheet a true mixed siamese issue.
