Canada Stamps - Collection of Lunar New Year Stamps - 24 Souvenir Sheets (1997-2020)

SKU: COL-CANA-LUNAR
Mint - Very Fine Never Hinged
From 1997 to 2021, Canada Post has been diligently releasing stamps celebrating the Lunar New Year at the beginning of each new year of the Gregorian calendar, which is quite a commitment! The lunisolar years are divided in twelve animals (ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, ram, monkey, rooster, dog, pig & rat). Canada Post issued a first complete cycle from 1997 to 2008, a second cycle from 2009 to 2020 and finally a scarce recap issue in 2021 in limited quantity (see #3259-72). This collection includes the 24 regular souvenir sheets depicting the two complete cycles issued by Canada Post, which can be quite difficult to find all at once! A lovely set to celebrate this new year of 2023, see below for a list of all the included stamps.
