Pig Zodiac Stamps to Be Issued on January 5

Updated: 2019-01-04


On January 5, 2019, the China Post will issue a set of zodiac stamps (two in all) for the upcoming Chinese Lunar Year of the Pig. These are the fourth round of pig zodiac stamps. They were designed by a famous Chinese artist, Han Meilin, the designer of the first round of pig zodiac stamps issued in 1983. Each stamp has a face value of 1.20 yuan. The first one depicts an enormously plump pig running towards a better life, while the second shows a five-member pig family, symbolizing family reunion and happiness.

Changsha’s first issue of this set of pig zodiac stamps will be launched in Ningxiang on the morning of January 5. Relevant stamp products can be bought that day. And mailing service can also be done through a temporary post office called “Ningxiang Spotted Pig”.
