Taiwan Post welcomed the upcoming Year of the Monkey with the issue of a set of two stamps and a souvenir sheet featuring the animal’s sign.
The set shares the same design concept as of the previous two year’s issues, using gold and orange to illustrate the animals’ energy and vigor.
The bodies of these agile and playful monkeys are decorated with floral patterns that provide a sense of auspiciousness and festiveness befitting the Year of the Monkey.
The peony blossoms over an orange and pink background suggest warmth and liveliness, conveying the wealth and abundance that will come in the Year of the Monkey.
