Issued to welcome in the Lunar New year and celebrate 2010 as the Year of the Tiger, these two stamps are the second issue in the 12-year Lunar New Year series. The stamps tell the story of the tiger through traditional Chinese icons and imagery. The international rate stamp, which is available only on the souvenir sheet, depicts a Chinese seal. The domestic rate stamp’s design features the imprint of this seal, which portrays a tiger in a traditionally stylized manner.
