With 2020 just 34 hours away as I write this in southern Thailand, there are eleven stamp-issuing entities set to release a total of 59 stamps, five postal cards, 2 single-stamp souvenir sheets, one multi-stamp miniature sheet and more during the first four days of the New Year.  I am certain I will learn of others sometime later.  Last year, the philatelic agency representing the African nation of Chad unleashed dozens of stamps and mini-sheets on New Year’s Day all of which I discovered through listings on the eBay auction site.

To date, Great Britain has not revealed even the subject matter for its 2020 Stamp Programme in sharp contrast with 2019. You may recall that the design for one of the announced stamps for the D-Day 75th anniversary set included a major error in design and had to be recalled.  Perhaps Royal Mail is taking extra time this year for fact-checking.

The large portrait was photographed specifically to be used on the stamp, while the photographs for the four small stamps were chosen in consultation with H.M. the Queen and show key events in her life.

NORDEN: Mammals

Denmark: NORDEN – Mammals, 02 January 2020. Image from PostNord Danmark (Frimarkprogram 2020 PDF).

Denmark’s Stamp Programme for 2020 was unveiled by NordPost Stamp Manager Martin Pingel at the national stamp exhibition in Copenhagen on 19 October 2019.

The following is from NordPost Danmark’s “frimarkprogram 2020 (eng)” brochure:

As has been the tradition for many years, the postal services of the eight Nordic countries issue stamps every other year on a common theme. This time, the theme is mammals. The stamps show some of the approx. 50 species of mammals that live and breed in the Danish countryside: roe deer, hedgehog, black squirrel, dormouse and stoat.

This is the first part of what I hope will be a comprehensive listing of new stamp issues as they are released throughout the year. This project began as a simple spreadsheet on which I tabulated every release I could track down. It soon became a “mission” to make the listing as complete as I could make it without access to the catalogues (which are published long after the stamps are issued). I then intended to create an end-of-the-month illustrated blog article but that proved to be too massive of a project, especially with my work schedule and other activities. I have since decided to post the information as a page that I constantly update throughout the year (and, as such, will always be accessible from the top menu on the page). I will announce progress on the page through my “Weekly Phila-Bytes” columns.

The listings are chronological by date, and then alphabetical by stamp-issuing entity. The images come from a wide range of difference sources, some are high-quality scans, others are low-resolution promotional mock-ups. Those latter images will be replaced by better ones as soon as I can. If you own any of these stamps, I would appreciate any upgrade in scans of your actual stamps via email. Occasionally, there are links that lead to additional information, including technical details, of the various stamp issues.

I hope you find this compilation useful.
