Stamps for Royal Brunei Armed Forces 50th Golden Jubilee

Last year the Royal Brunei Armed Forces celebrated its 50th Anniversary. I thought there will be stamps to commemorate the Golden Jubilee but there were not any. On 31st May this year, the stamps finally came out. The stamps are in a series of 5 stamps at 50cents each, $2.50 is the cost for the five stamps. There was also a miniature sheet with $50 stamp to commemorate the 50th anniversary. I have lost count of how many $50 stamps now issued by the Brunei postal authorities.

The new stamps are issued in sheetlets of 5 sets and the miniature sheet with a single $50 stamp as follows:
