China Post will issue a set of two stamps celebrating the upcoming Chinese Year of the Dog on 5 January 2018. Each stamp will bear a face price of 1.2 yuan (18 US cents) and are due to be released nationwide. One stamp shows a male dog, while the other depicts a female with a puppy. The stamps have been designed by Zhou Lingzhao, a retired professor from Beijing’s Central Academy of Fine Arts.
The design depicts a Chinese paper lantern with an outline image of a dog in red. The issue also will include an international-rate stamp and souvenir sheet, similar to other recent Lunar New Year sets from Canada Post.
The stamp will be released on 15th January 2018.
