Here is a set of ANGOLA stamps that was removed from the Scott catalog after a few years because the postal authority claim they did not approve the issue.

I have a bunch of those as well. I haven't cataloged mine yet, but StampWorld.com lists most of them I think.

Here is a UPU circular on the issues:

If they were not issued or placed on sale there, they would not exist.

Funny how that issue was unauthorized, just at first glance I would be more likely to think it legitimate because the subject matter seems to be directly related to the country the stamps are claiming to represent. It's not like the wallpaper pablum of celebrities etc that many countries' agents release these days (and back in the 1990s as well) that has no connection whatsoever with the country the stamp is supposed to represent.

ETA - Woohoo my 50th post!

Looks like Angola had a little inflation going in 2000!

That's what I was thinking about, when I first saw them.
Encourages spending,
Tomorrow's price, may be another 500,000

Anybody like numbers?

The inflation rate for consumer prices in Angola moved over the past 27 years between 7.3% and 4,145.1%. For 2018, an inflation rate of 20.2% was calculated. During the observation period from 1991 to 2018, the average inflation rate was 409.2% per year. Overall, the price increase was 1,519,991,186,653.01 %.

I recall (with nightmares) in Australia 1987 I think it was, I bought some home units, and my interest rate was 17%
Apparently I survived it all.
