To continue the “Lighthouses Postage Stamps” series, Chunghwa Post will release another set of four stamps, featuring the Fangyuan Lighthouse, the Chamu Yu Lighthouse, the Lanyu Lighthouse, and the Sandiaojiao Lighthouse. The designs follow:
1. Fangyuan Lighthouse (NT$5): Located in Wanggong Fishing Port in Changhua County’s Fanyuan Township, this lighthouse was constructed in 1983 as an octagon-shaped reinforced concrete tower, featuring a black-and-white vertical-striped daymark, with a fourth-order electric light. The lighthouse has a nominal range of 16.6 nautical miles.
2. Chamu Yu Lighthouse (NT$5): Situated in Chamu Island in Penghu, this lighthouse completed construction in 1913. An octagon-shape brick tower, it was demolished during World War II, and repaired in 1948. After the repairs, the lighthouse was installed with a fifth-order acetylene light. In 2000, this lighthouse was given a facelift with a solar panel; its lamp was powered with electric lights. The lighthouse has a nominal range of 9 nautical miles.
3. Lanyu Lighthouse (NT$10): This lighthouse sits on the mountaintop on the northwestern tip of Lanyu. It was built in 1982 as a cylinder concrete tower, with a third-order revolving AC light. It has the highest elevation of any lighthouse in Taiwan. The lighthouse has a nominal range of 26.1 nautical miles.
4. Sandiaojiao Lighthouse (NT$25): Situated in Sandiaojiao in Taiwan’s northeastern coastal point, this lighthouse was built in 1935 as a white cylinder concrete tower, with a third-order kerosene incandescent lamp, with a red sector light indicating the bearing of Guishan Island. In 1942, the lighthouse was equipped with a third-order revolving lens light. The nominal range of the white light is 24.5 nautical miles, and the range of the red light is 20 nautical miles.
