Coins on stamps is a topic that is quite popular among stampcollectors. Also coin collectors sometimes have a small stamp collection with coins on stamps.
For me, this post is extra special, as the stamps are 'round' stamps, so they fit into my collection of 'odd stamps'.
One stamp is showing the front side of the coin, the other stamp shows the back side.
First coin (KM#51) is a 10 sen coin, issued from 1989 on.
On the back a ceremonial table is shown.

The front shows the value, the back shows a basket, containing food and utensils.

the back shows a ceremonial kite.

This set of stamps was issued in 2009.
It was followed by another set of coins on stamps, but I tell more about them in my next post.
