One (1) MNH SINGLE STAMP in title from Canada Post
2019 Year of the Pig: International Issue Issue
Send warm wishes to welcome the Year of the Pig with this single international-rate stamp accented with gold foil.
The stamp 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 modestly dressed and seated Pigsy clutches 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.
