The stamps have been given the title of “Vietnam’s Sea & Islands Part 2: Vietnam Coast Guard” and have been designed by local painter Nguyen Du.
The collection is therefore poised to debut on the public postal network from August 27 to June 30, 2022.
The collection will include four models, with the main images featuring the coast guard and rescue ships designed to allow coast guard forces to perform patrol, search, and rescue missions to safeguard the nation’s marine sovereignty.
Following a decision made in 2018, the Ministry of Information and Communications has pledged to issue three sets of stamps with the theme of “Vietnam’s Sea & Islands”.
Most notably, La Poste, the French postal service, also issued five sets of stamps in 2019 which showcase images of the beautiful nature of Vietnam’s sea and islands, including locations such as Ly Son island, Ghenh Da Dia, Ha Long Bay, Song Tu Tay island, and the Truong Sa archipelago, also known as the Spratly islands.
