This is Part 1 of a two-part list of all the stamps known to have been issued in January 2022. Each basic stamp is illustrated. Those stamps released in multiple formats (such as gummed and self-adhesive varieties of the same design) are usually represented by just one image. Links (highlighted in yellow) are for those issues which have an accompanying article on this site. Part 2 will be published within the next week.

I hope this proves useful as a visual record of all the stamps released in 2022 as I am planning to attempt a similar tabulation each month throughout the year. Time will tell whether I can maintain this. I have also resumed adding each new issue to a Google Calendar; thus far, I have completed the entries for January and will soon move forward as my workload permits.

 

For the first thirteen days of 2022, I count 235 different stamps.  This includes 59 stamps included in nine miniature sheets, 13 single-stamp souvenir sheets, 10 ATM franking labels, and a solitary pre-stamped envelope from Russia (there were likely other postal stationery items that I am not aware of). Issues such as the Blueberries and Flag stamps from the United States are represented by a single image although the same basic designs were printed in panes and coils from different companies which resulted in different varieties.

Lunar New Year always gives me a headache and not only from the neighbors setting off copious amounts of fireworks each morning around 3 a.m. for more than a week! There are always certain territories which issue numerous limited edition items for the holiday, Christmas Island and Singapore being two early January examples. I have given up trying to complete such listings.

I have also decided to list any agency releases on a separate schedule page but will NOT include those within these monthly summaries. Not only do those territories under the aegis of the likes of IGPC, PCi and Stampera issue a vast amount of stamps (usually as mini-sheets) which rarely pertain to anything local but they rarely provide accurate issue dates. For example, Burundi released 16 different stamps, mostly in sheets of 10 and miniature sheets of 2 all on an unspecified date in early January.  I may report on the occasional COVID-19 themed stamps but the vast majority will not receive much attention on this site other than the aforementioned schedule page.  I work on this only when I really have nothing else to do so it may be some time before it is published to the site.

If there are any stamps that I have failed to include in this (and future) monthly summary lists, please let me know. It would help immensely if you include the issue date and any other information you might have, particularly good-quality images.

Thank you.  Now, let’s take a look at the stamps issued during the first part of January…
