Description
On October 16, 1995, postal rates changed. The Ministry of Information and Communication will consequently begin issuing two new definitive postage stamps: one with a denomination of 210 won, which will be set as the basic rate of nonstandrdized postal items for non-priority mail, and the other denomination of 560 won, which will be the basic rate of nonstandrdized postal items for priority mail.

The definitive stamps for priority mail feature an airplane, signifying their speedy delivery, to distinguish them from the definitive stamps for non-priority mail. The colors of the planeand the border of the stamps differ according to denomination and use: thus, the 560 won definitive stamp features an airplne with a pink border, indicating its use for nonstandrdized mail.
