Add to Cart

Mark the end of the Year of the Rooster and the beginning of the Year of the Dog with this colourful souvenir sheet. The souvenir sheet is embossed and gold foil has been used to highlight details.

On the top half is the international-rate stamp from this year’s issue. Designed by Subplot Design Inc. of Vancouver, the stamp features an illustration of a golden dog on a glowing red lantern. Below it is the international-rate stamp from the Year of the Rooster issue. Designed by Paprika of Montréal, it features a closely-cropped profile of a rooster created out of wavy gold lines. Both stamps feature calligraphy by Order of Ontario recipient Albert Ng.

The Year of the Dog begins on February 16, 2018, and runs 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.
