Malaysia has issued a special collection of stamps and first-day covers featuring ferns.
"These stamps are aimed at helping the public to know the fern species available in the country," says Pos Malaysia Stamp and Philately Unit head Yasmin Ramli.
"Actually, we want to cater to the demand of collectors. They already have a collection of stamps on the 'paku-pakis' (ferns) from countries such as Australia, Taiwan and New Zealand."
According to Pos Malaysia group managing director and chief executive Officer Datuk Syed Faisal, "the beauty of the country's natural wonders had always been a favourite subject for Pos Malaysia."
