The Chinese Postal Service (CPS) was officially launched on March 20, 1896. This year (2016) marks its 120th anniversary. To commemorate the occasion, Chunghwa Post releases a souvenir sheet. This souvenir sheet contains two stamps; one at NT$5 in face value, the other NT$12. They feature a vintage mailbox and bicycle, contrasted by a modern motorcycle and mailbox, and impressed with gold and silver inks, respectively. The inscriptions are dedicated to celebrating postal service facilities of different eras, putting into focus the past of the mail service, post systems of the modern age, and the vision to stay abreast of the trend. The illustrations are beautifully outlined, and complemented by colors red, green, gold, and silver to acknowledge the legacy and innovation of the postal service.
