SingPost’s Areas of Historical Significance stamp set
Issuance Date: 21 March 2018

SINGAPORE, 21 March 2018 – Singapore Post Limited (SingPost) today launched a new set of stamps featuring two areas of historical significance: Arab Street and Kampong Glam.

Amid Singapore’s rapid development, the areas around Arab Street and Kampong Glam form one of the nation’s major cultural enclaves, retaining a rich cultural heritage and strong ties to the Malay-Muslim community.

The stamp issue commemorates these distinctive places with illustrations depicting past and present scenes of the two locations – shophouses in Arab Street and Sultan Mosque in Kampong Glam. They come in two denominations: 1st Local and $1.30.

Pre-cancelled First Day Covers affixed with the complete set of stamps are available at $4.70 each.
