List of Most Collectable Postage Stamps of Recent Years

Recently I have fallen in love with collecting postage stamps issued on same theme by different countries. These may include joint issue stamps with same or different designs by two or more countries like Slovenia-Slovakia joint issue or Pakistan-Belarus joint issue set. In most cases,
Another more challenging variation of these issues is the collection of postage stamps issued on same theme by different countries without any coordination among themselves, thus ensuring different designs of all stamps. These may include stamps issued to commemorate the memorable event of , or 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia, etc.
A few stamps issued for 2019 International Year of Periodic Table
Some of my favourite topics from recent years are as below (You can click on the links to see the list of stamps):

As the collection grows, it turns into a fascinating collection to brag about.

Challenges in Collecting Stamps on Same Themes:
  • Not-Well Documented: While joint issue stamps are well-documented and easier to find, these themes are often not listed properly. 
  • Difficult to Find: In most cases the countries issuing joint issues sell the stamps of other country as well to help the philatelists, which is never the case in stamps issued on same theme by different countries.
  • Issues from Very Hard Countries: Some of these stamps are issued by very small countries, which can prove quite a pain to find.
  • A few Very Expensive Issues: To cash on the opportunity, some countries issue these stamps at exorbitant prices, which becomes tough for the hobby collectors to lay hands on. In some cases, the stamps or souvenir sheets are issued in very low quantity like 100, 200 or even 500. This gives the opportunity to the dealers to hoard the issue and sell the subsequently at a very very high price.
Do you collect such common topics stamp issues?? Which are your favourite themes??

The Lions motto is "We Serve". Lions Club programs include sight conservation, hearing and speech conservation, diabetes awareness, youth outreach, international relations, environmental issues, and many other programs. The discussion of politics and religion is forbidden.
The LIONS acronym also stands for Liberty, Intelligence, Our Nations' Safety.

In 2017, Lions Clubs International celebrated 100 years of the club with the title "Lions Clubs Centennial" or "Lions Clubs Centenary".  Lions and Leos from around the world participated in special initiatives, programs and events to celebrate a century of serving humanity. It was truly a celebration unlike any the world has ever seen.

From philatelic point of view, many countries issued special commemorative stamps to mark the occasion of Lions Club Centenary. While most of these stamps were issued in 2017, Sri Lanka mis-timed the issue in December 2016, whereas India & Panama joined in the race as late comers in 2018 as well.
