StampNews.com got to know that in its seventh release in a 12-year series, Canada Post honors Lunar New Year with a pair of stamps commemorating the Year of the Ram, a time marked by creativity, caring, sensitivity and transforming misfortune into good luck.
The domestic stamp showcases three rams welcoming spring, a popular New Year's image, especially at the start of the Year of the Ram, which begins on February 19, 2015 and ends February 7, 2016.
An internationally denominated stamp, souvenir sheets and other philatelic products are also available for this popular series.
"Our Lunar New Year issue is a perennial favourite with collectors and consumers alike", says Jim Phillips, Director of Stamp Services. "We're very proud that the many designers who have worked on this issue have managed to balance a series 'feel' while keeping the design fresh and new every year".
