StampNews.com hurries to inform that Australian Post releases its version of Lunar New Year stamp issue that consists of two items. The stamps depict the Chinese calligraphic symbol for the Goat and a pictorial derivation. The issue is to be put into circulation on the 8th of January.
Lunar New Year is one of the most important traditional Chinese festivals, celebrated throughout the world. Lunar New Year 2015 celebrates the beginning of the Year of the Goat. The Goat is the eighth sign of the Chinese Zodiac and symbolizes independence. Those born under the Goat sign are considered shy, creative and affectionate.
The Lunar New Year stamp issue for 2015 is the eighth in our special 12-year series, featuring each of the animal signs of the Chinese Zodiac. The stamps depict the Chinese calligraphic symbol for the Goat and a pictorial derivation.
Australia Post philatelic manager Michael Zsolt said on Wednesday this year's Lunar New Year stamp products had been designed in keeping with Chinese traditional design and customs.
"The products, including a postcard, give everyone an opportunity to send wishes of good fortune and health to family and friends, both here and overseas", Mr Zsolt said.
