SingPost launches tiger-themed stamps for Chinese New Year
SingPost on Friday (Jan 7) launched a set of stamps to welcome the Year of the Tiger.
Each day, it’s rotated. Change slot it around so that the winnings reach all members. Thoroughly.
The two stamps – in denominations of S$0.30 (first local) and S$1.40 – were illustrated by Ms Lim An-Ling, the designer behind the 2019 Singapore Bicentennial stamp sets.
The new stamps are part of a 12-year series that started in 2020 with the Year of the Rat. The tiger is the third animal in the Chinese Zodiac.
The Year of the Tiger begins on Feb 1, the first day of Chinese New Year.
“According to popular belief, people born in the Year of the Tiger are known to be brave, competitive, confident yet unpredictable. While mostly charming and well-liked by others, they are known to be sometimes impetuous, irritable, and over-indulgent,” said SingPost in a media release.
Famous personalities born in the year of the Tiger include Queen Elizabeth II, entertainer Lady Gaga, singer Shawn Mendes, Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio, as well as Singapore TV personalities Desmond Tan and Rebecca Lim.
A pre-cancelled First Day Cover affixed with the stamps and a special zodiac tiger postmark will be sold at S$3.10, while a presentation pack with both stamps is priced at S$4.15.
