Add to Cart

Celebrate the Year of the Dog with this Official First Day cover, one of a set of four.

Each First Day Cover in the set is stamped with a corner block of four PermanentTM domestic stamps taken from a pane of 25. All four corner pieces have unique Lunar New Year greetings in calligraphy by Order of Ontario recipient Albert Ng. The stamps on this First Day Cover are from the upper left corner of the pane and the greeting reads “Wishing you luck in the Year of the Dog.”

The stamps feature an illustration of a red dog on a glowing lantern. In the lower left is the Chinese character for dog, gǒu. The stamps are postmarked in Vancouver, British Columbia.

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.
