Chinese New Year welcomed by PHLPost. Two special “Year of the Rooster” stamps released

The rooster is the tenth of the twelve Chinese zodiac animals, followed by the Year of the Dog for 2018. Among the Chinese Zodiac animals, the rooster or chicken represents fidelity and punctuality, for it wakes people up on time. The Chinese says, people born in the year of the Rooster are beautiful, kind-hearted, hardworking, courageous, independent, humorous and honest.

PHLPost has printed 101,000 copies of the two (2) different colorful designs of the regular stamps which can be purchased at P18 and P45 per stamp. In addition, PHLPost also printed 5,000 copies of the limited edition souvenir gold foil and special round perforation of the “New Year stamps” to be sold at P200 each for stamp collectors.
