Special Edition Heartwarming Stamps (2013 Version) \”Year of the Snake\” Mini-pane
Date of Issue: 21 February 2013

The use of animals to mark the 12 components of the Lunar New Year Cycle is a long-held tradition in China. 2013 is the Year of the Snake. Hongkong Post releases the Special Edition Heartwarming Stamps (2013 Version) \”Year of the Snake\” Mini-pane.

The mini-pane adopts the design of the $1.4 and $3 mint stamps in \”Year of the Snake\” special stamp issue of 2013. The images of moth orchids and peonies are imprinted on the top of the two designs of the mini-panes respectively, with stamp tabs featuring various Chinese New Year flowers, such as nipple fruits, daffodils, lilies and peach flowers, to enhance the festive spirit of the Lunar New Year. Instead of showing the value of each stamp, the Heartwarming Stamps bear a \”Local Mail Postage\” or \”Air Mail Postage\” to suit your posting needs.(Source-HongKong Post)
