Chunghwa Post on Thursday said it would launch a slate of commemorative stamps and postcards featuring Year of the Rat motifs early next month in preparation for the Lunar New Year.

The stamps, valued at NT$6, NT$13 and NT$15, are to be available from post offices nationwide Tuesday next week, as well as at the Postal Museum in Taipei.

The NT$6 stamp features a rat juggling a traditional Chinese coin, symbolizing wealth and good fortune in the coming year, while the NT$13 stamp is decorated with a dancing rat, representing health and happiness.

A souvenir collector’s set, valued at NT$1,400, would include two sheets of 20 NT$6 stamps, two sheets of 20 NT$13 stamps and one sheet of nine NT$15 stamps, as well as a certificate of authenticity, the postal company said.

In addition to the stamps, Chunghwa Post said it would also offer a range of postcards based on themes associated with the Year of the Rat, which begins on Jan. 25.
