To welcome the New Year, Chunghwa Post has issued a set of two New Year stamps and a souvenir sheet. The design is based on the theme: New Year's greetings from the lucky dragon. The details are as follows:
1. NT$6 stamp: Majestic and elegant, the auspicious purple dragon holds its head up high to welcome in the New Year.
2. NT$13 stamp: Upright and proud, the green dragon represents a New Year of extraordinary power wishing all people health and wealth to perfection.
3. NT$15 souvenir sheet: Wreathed in might and awe, soaring above the common crowd, the golden dragon betokens a New Year of luck reaching to the heavens and fortune redounding on high.
