vintage and contemporary postcards and stamps from around the world

30 January 2022


It seems Canada Post has given up making any more Lunar New Year stamps which is so disappointing.

Thank goodness I still have a souvenir sheet (with gold foil) from the last Year of the Tiger, in 2010.

This year, New Year falls on February 1st. I have already stocked up on dumplings.

From fifty years prior, another tiger from the Malaysian state of Trengganu. This tiger features on several identical stamps save for state name on the bottom and its sultan encircled in the corner.

Impressive tigers on those stamps! I have enjoyed the New Year Canadian stamps so far, it is a pity they aren't producing any more.

No tigers on my post!

Nicely detailed sheet, I like the seal and that crouching tiger. Pity there is not a Canada one this year but that is a great one to have in your collection.
My tigers are here

The Year of the Tiger souvenir sheet is gorgeous.

Wow, that is an impressive stamp.

A bit slow today, but don't have any tiger/lunar new year stamps to hand. I'll see you next week!
