To celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Founding of the Republic of China, Chunghwa Post will issue a set of four stamps and a souvenir sheet. The designs follow:

The four stamps depict the four major stages in the development of the ROC respectively: The Founding of the Republic (NT$5), Agricultural and Economic Development (NT$5), Transportation Infrastructure (NT$10) and High Technology Development (NT$25). Printed in a se-tenant strip of four, the stamps are with special perforations of the numerals “1,” “0,” and “0” in between.

The color scheme of the souvenir sheet (NT$25) reflects the blue sky, white sun and red earth of the national flag. The design features the national flag, the Presidential Office Building and a portrait of Dr. Sun Yat-sen with the ROC constitution as the background. Except for the gold-foiled Chinese wordings “In Commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of the Founding” and gold color printed Chinese for “the Republic of China Stamp” as well as the English words “REPUBLIC OF CHINA (TAIWAN)” on the souvenir sheet, the Chinese wordings “Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the Founding” is hot stamped with optical variable film.

The logo of the centennial is placed on each stamp and the souvenir sheet.

A stamp folio will be released along with the stamps. The folio includes a set of the commemorative issue, a “2nd Print of the National Flower Postage Stamp”, a “Fireworks Display Postage Stamps” and a limited edition specimen of the commemorative souvenir sheet. Also included are five postal cards, four of which are affixed with a relative stamp from this issue, and pre-cancelled. Both the folio and the postal cards have a double cross design which resembles the Chinese character for ten to symbolize “Double Tenth Day”—i.e. the national day of the Republic of China on October 10. On an interleaf, the lyrics to the ROC national anthem are embossed while printing. The design of the folio, both of its inside and its cover, are very creative.
