For June, I count 81 stamp-issuing entities having released 187 separate stamp sets which is down slightly from May’s totals of 214 issues by 86 postal administrations).  It did seem like there were more “last-minute” announcements for issues this month than usual. Also, a fair number of the stamp releases were those originally scheduled for issuance in April or May but postponed due to the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.  There was still a trickle of stamps issued under that theme (many, many more if you count the personalized stamps which will no longer be featured here on Philatelic Pursuits). The above numbers do not include non-postage stamps (other than a few ATM labels) or postal stationery, although I do occasionally include listings for both as I obtain information on them.

This post attempts to list every stamp released during the month of June 2020. Unless I hear otherwise, I assume that the issues went ahead as originally scheduled. Being able to find an image of an actual stamp rather than an artist’s rendition is always welcome.

The stamp-issuing entities are listed alphabetically and the date of issue chronologically for each issue. Clicking on the issue name will take you to the original post on Philatelic Pursuits where images may be found of the stamp(s) and often full sheets, first day covers and other items associated with that particular release.

An issue name highlighted in red denotes an issue that doesn’t (yet) have an article on this site.  Eventually, the stamp will be added and this list updated with the link. Yellow means an active link to a New Issue post.  Those issuing entities printed in blue link to the 2020 stamp programme on this site while grey means that I haven’t yet created a page for that particular stamp-issuing entity.

Details in the original blog entries are almost always taken directly from materials published by the issuers’ philatelic agency, either as press releases, collector announcements or online shop product descriptions. There are occasional poor translations, either provided by the postal administration themselves or as a result of translation software. They can be amusing at times. I always welcome better-quality scans of the actual stamps and any on-cover (non-philatelic) usages of this material. If you have anything you would like to share, please send me an email at the address below.

Stay Safe and Keep Collecting Stamps.
