KUALA LUMPUR: Local folk legend Hang Tuah will be depicted on a new stamp collection on Malay folklore, to be launched by Pos Malaysia on Monday.
The “Malay Folk Stories” collection features six legends – Hang Tuah, Mahsuri, Tun Teja, Merong Mahawangsa, Tun Kudu and Tun Fatimah.
Printed on exclusive watermark papers, the stamps are available in three se-tenant designs, in denominations of 60 sen each.
“We hope that these stamp images and their stories encourage the public to learn more about our own history,” said Pos Malaysia in a press statement Friday.
First-day covers with stamps will be sold for RM4.10 each, while those without stamps will be sold for 50 sen each. Folders are sold for RM6 each, while a complete set will be sold for RM46.10.
