  To meet the needs of the public for prepaying postage in large amounts, a new set of postage stamps of higher value was issued with double carp as its central design.

  The design of 10.00, 20.00, 50.00 and 100.00 stamps released in 1967 is similar to that of earlier issues with the exception of slight changes made on border patterns.

  To facilitate the use by the public, the following stamps in stock were gummed and put on sale on November 1, 1971:
6.00,  1,450,000;   20.00,  950,000;
50.00,   850,000;  100.00,  375,000.
