Celebrate the Year of the Dog with this limited-edition framed pane of 25 PermanentTM domestic stamps accompanied by a souvenir sheet with the international-rate stamp. This ready-to-hang collectible makes a wonderful gift for a friend or relative born in the Year of the Dog, or for parents expecting a child this year. Only 700 of these framed collectibles have been produced.

The pane of domestic stamps is embossed and gold foil has been used to highlight details. The stamps on the pane feature an illustration of a red dog on a glowing lantern. The colours are reversed on the international-rate stamp on the souvenir sheet, which has an illustration of a golden dog on a red lantern.

In the lower left of each is the Chinese character for dog, gǒu, in calligraphy by Order of Ontario recipient Albert Ng. Vertical characters on each side of the pane of stamps spell out four traditional Lunar New Year greetings.

The Year of the Dog begins on February 16, 2018, and lasts until February 4, 2019. Those born under this sign are said to be loyal, happy, and playful but sometimes stubborn. Driven by a sense of duty and justice, and disinterested in wealth or power, these sympathetic people put the well-being of others above all else.

Red, green, and purple are the lucky colours for those born in the Year of the Dog. Their lucky numbers are 3, 4, and 9.

This collectible is part of the tenth issue in Canada Post’s Lunar New Year series, which began with the Year of the Ox in 2009.
