One (1) MNH SINGLE STAMP in title from Canada Post
2019 Year of the Pig: Issue
Celebrate the Year of the Pig with this single from a booklet of 10 PermanentTM domestic stamps. The design is inspired by Zhu Bajie, a colourful character from the 16th-century Chinese novel Journey to the West. Banished from a powerful position in Heaven, he is reborn into the mortal world as Pigsy, a half-human, half-pig creature. On the stamp, a proud Pigsy is clad in heavenly armour as he carries an enormous muck rake.
The Year of the Pig begins February 5, 2019, and ends on January 24, 2020. While the pig is the twelfth and final animal in the Chinese Lunar calendar, this is Canada Post’s eleventh Lunar New Year issue. Our series concludes in January 2020, with the arrival of the Year of the Rat.
