Face value CHF 2.00
Motif Year of the Pig

The Philately is continuing its elaborately designed series of Chinese signs of the zodiac with this issue. For the “Year of the Pig 2019” (value: CHF 2.00), it is issuing a self-adhesive special stamp designed in the form of a delicate paper cut and produced using ultramodern laser technology. The sheet of four stamps in red, a colour that symbolises luck in China, is also cut in the shape of a pig. All overprints were affixed in high-grade gold foil embossing.
The next Chinese year begins on 5 February 2019. According to astrologers from the Far East, 2019 will be a year of good fortune. It will be an excellent year to earn money and will also be a year of friendship and love for all signs of the zodiac. Experts state that those born in the year of the pig are by nature peace-loving, trusting, honest and sincere. They are said to have good luck and success in business and science and when handling money. They are also supposed to have a thirst for knowledge and are generally well-informed. The pig specially celebrated in 2019 is also very patient, practically-minded and has both feet firmly on the ground.
