China Post issued a set of special stamps for the Year of the Tiger that day. This year there are two stamps, each depicting a different scene. The set costs 2.40 yuan ($0.38).

The first stamp is named “Guoyun Changlong”, which means “national fortune and prosperity”. It depicts a majestic tiger peering into the distance, artistically displaying the determination and ambition of China to develop itself in the new year.

Meanwhile, the stamp named “Huyun Jixiang” shows a heartwarming picture wherein a gentle mother tiger tends to her two baby tigers, extending the best wishes for family harmony and reunion to people all over the country.
