Lunar year of the Monkey

The South African Post Office issued a miniature sheet on 27 February 2004 to celebrate the Chinese Lunar Year of the Monkey. The miniature sheet is the 6th to be issued depicting a Chinese Zodiac Sign. The series began with the year of the Tiger issued in 1998 and we have since then seen the Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse and now the Monkey. According to the Chinese Lunar Year, the Year of the Monkey starts on 22 January and ends on 12 February.
