China Post has released the latest addition to its zodiac stamp series. And if past editions are anything to go by, these stamps could be worth a fortune in years to come. The stamp features the painted image of an ox, which is the zodiac animal of the upcoming Chinese New Year. Its face value is set at 1.2 yuan. It has been hotly anticipated among stamp collectors. That’s because the ox is a symbol of prosperity and good luck in Chinese culture. People woke up early on Monday in major cities such as Beijing and Shanghai, queuing up to purchase the new stamp. A stamp collector said, “I’ve been collecting the zodiac series right from the beginning. I’ve got all of them.” The collectors are expecting a fresh start and better fortune in the new year. They hope the ox stamp will bring greater prosperity for the country, and for themselves as well. In 1980, China Post issued the first zodiac stamp. Since then, 29 stamps have been designed and released. Some rare editions have appreciated more than 2000 times over their face value. Collectors are expressing confidence the zodiac stamp series will become a popular part of China’s contemporary culture.
