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.
