The Sangkum Reastr Niyum ("People's Socialist Community") was a political organization set up in 1955. The Sangkum party was established after Sihanouk abdicated from the throne in 1955 in favor of his father Norodom Suramarit, with the intention of concentrating on politics. The Sangkum retained control of the government of Cambodia throughout the first administration of Sihanouk, from 1955 to 1970.


To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Sangkum Reastr Niyum, this set, shows Prince Norodom Sihanouk, was issued on October 31, 1964:

Garuda is a Hindu demigod and divine creature mentioned in the Hindu, Buddhist and Jain faiths. Garuda is described as the king of the birds and a kite-like figure. He is shown either in a zoomorphic form (a giant bird with partially open wings) or an anthropomorphic form (a man with wings and some ornithic features). Garuda is generally portrayed as a protector with the power to swiftly travel anywhere, ever vigilant and an enemy of every serpent.

Garuda brings letter, airmail stamps issued in two parts on December 11, 1957 and March 3, 1958:
