We are delighted to release the tenth set of stamps in our series to mark the Chinese New Year, which is China’s oldest festival and the most important celebration in the Chinese calendar.
Our latest stamps celebrate 2023 being the Year of the Rabbit, according to the Chinese Zodiac.
The stamps have been designed by artist Chrissy Lau, who has worked on our entire Chinese New Year series. Chrissy features red as the primary colour to symbolise good fortune and joy, which is used in celebrations like Lunar New Year. The touches of gold represent wealth, prosperity and happiness.
