Canada has issued two stamps to celebrate the Year of the Monkey on 6th January 2016. The designs of the “P” domestic-rate and $2.50 international-rate stamps were inspired by the legend of the Monkey King, also known as Sun Wu Kong, one of the main characters in the classic Chinese novel Journey to the West.
The set of stamps comes in three denominations – 1st Local, S$0.70 and S$1.30. There is also a Pre-cancelled First Day Cover at S$3.10 each affixed with the complete set of stamps. The First Day Cover is cancelled with a special Zodiac Monkey postmark.
