New Issues 2009 (July - September)

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.

All stamps from Australian Antarctic Territory, Christmas Islands and Cocos (Keeling) Islands are valid in Australia for postage. Norfolk although being linked to Australia is in fact an independent postal administration since 1947 and Norfolk stamps are not valid 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.
(1) The Australian postal administration issued the 2009-year pack in two forms (normal and executive, respectively sales prices of AU$ 99.95 and AU$ 134.95). These books containing all stamps issued during the year 2009, including also this miniature sheet that shows the head of the parrot over the 5 labels forming the central cross.
