The first Sedang stamps in 107 years were issued by the Royal Sedang Post of the Sedang court of nobility in exile. The three stamps show heraldic beasts of the Kingdom of the Sedang:
|25 centimes (black):||black eagle holding a gold key (crest of Derwin J.K.W. Mak, Prince Regent of Sedang)|
|50 centimes (red):||Chinese dragon, symbol of the emperors of China and Vietnam.|
|1 piastre (blue):||gold lion rampant wearing an Eastern coronet (from the new coat of arms of Sedang; based on the original coat of arms of 1888).|
The stamps were offset printed in sheets of 35 with two marginal inscriptions per sheet. All stamps are imperforate. First day covers were made with either a special rectangular “First Day of Issue” cancellation or a red circular date cancellation.
