On March 7 2015, post authority of  Transnitria, issued a new set of stamps -  Archaeology of Pridnestrovie (Metallic Gold and Silver Overprints on "Palaeolithic History" Stamps of 1996)
The series consists of five stamps depicting the life of Paleolithic man fossils and objects found during archaeological excavations on the territory of Transnistria near the village Rashkov and in a grotto near the village Vyhvatintsy "- said the director of the State Unitary Enterprise" Mark Transnistria "Vsevolod Lawrence.
The presentation took place  at the department of nature MU "Tiraspol united museum."

Transnistria (also called Trans-Dniestr or Transdniestria) is a breakaway state located mostly on a strip of land between the River Dniester and the eastern Moldovan border with Ukraine. Since its declaration of independence in 1990, and especially after the War of Transnistria in 1992, it has been governed as the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic (PMR, also known as Pridnestrovie), a state with limited recognition that claims territory to the east of the River Dniester, and also to the city of Bender and its surrounding localities on the west bank, in the historical region of Bessarabia. The names "Transnistria" and "Pridnestrovie" both refer to the Dniester River.
Unrecognised by any United Nations member state, Transnistria is designated by the Republic of Moldova as the Transnistria autonomous territorial unit with special legal status 
On November 18, 1993, the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet (Council) of the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic made decision on issuing the first stamps. The first Transnistria stamp appeared on December 31, 1993. Since then it has typically issued between 3 and 5 different series of stamps per year. The region's name is given only in Cyrillic, as 'ПОЧТА ПМР' (POST OF PMR, with PMR standing for Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic).
The stamps of Transnistria are not recognised outside the country and are valid only for domestic service within Transnistria. International mail and mail to the rest of Moldova requires Moldovian stamps.
