40p – With his head facing backwards, the horse is reminiscing on the previous year, whilst his raised front leg signifies his readiness for the year ahead.  The cloud pattern is one of the oldest patterns in Chinese art & architecture.
 
53p – The horse is galloping confidently and directly into the future. The pattern is inspired by the endless knot which symbolises longevity in Chinese folk tradition, which is associated with Buddhism.

55p – An energetic kicking horse inspired by Chinese brush paintings. A popular depiction in Chinese art, the galloping horse has its head turned back and shows a strong kick of the back leg.

63p - This horse is deep in thought and humble with its head bowed. It represents the sensitive nature of those born in the Year of the Horse. The scale pattern is a familiar design used in Chinese art.

71p - People born in the year of the horse exude strength and stability - this horse depicts these qualities with this powerful stance - rearing to the future. The floral patterns are inspired by Chinese tapestries and ceramics. 

79p - A familiar theme in Chinese art and brush paintings, the eight horse design has gained a strong cultural significance in Chinese culture since the number eight symbolises wealth and success. 

Our sets are supplied in a robust glassine bag. You may decide to place the stamps in a special album in order to preserve their mint condition (see Albums and Binders section).

If you're a new stamp collector we would recommend you pause and make a few decisions which will help if you decide later to collect seriously.

Mint stamps (otherwise known as unused) have never been cancelled or affixed to anything. They will be in the same pristine condition as they were when they left the printer.
