To express gratitude for the first popularly elected president in the nation's history, Chunghwa Post has released a souvenir sheet in commemoration. Featuring a stamp with a denomination of NT$28, it has a simple and stately appearance: A block of gold represents the solid and precious stone that President Lee laid for the foundations of democratic society in Taiwan and the deep values of freedom that he embodied.
Lee served as a minister without portfolio in the Executive Yuan, mayor of Taipei, vice president of the Republic of China during its seventh term, and the ROC president during its seventh, eighth and ninth terms.
