Default The End of New Stamps Issues?

"Iceland Post recently announced the decision to stop servicing postage
stamp collectors due to heavy losses in recent years. The service, which has
mainly been used by stamp collectors all over the world, will stop in 2020,
RÚV reports. (...) The publication will be continued through next year, and
maybe a little bit into 2021, to finish prior plans. (...)

Iceland Post’s exclusive right to distribute letters is void at the end of
2019. The company is now working on finalizing a service agreement with
Icelandic authorities. Directors at Iceland Post state they are willing to
continue publishing stamps if authorities consider stamps culturally
important. They state, however, that the state will have to cover costs if
the publication is to continue."
