Following the “Thriving Dog Postage Label” issued in 2018, Chunghwa Post is issuing a “Rich Pig Postage Label.” “Pig” has been a symbol of prosperity and wealth since ancient times. The design of this postage label features a red “rich pig” as a sign of good fortune, a year of plenty and everything going well. There are three spring couplets of Chinese characters decorated in the background, symbolizing “good luck,” “bursting with happiness” and “an abundance of wealth,” giving a taste of the good fortune and joyful spirit of the New Year. On the lower left corner of each label is a serial number with three English letters (which signify the roll number) and four Arabic numerals. A total of 700 rolls with 1,000 labels each will be issued.
A folio with two styles (from which, 8,000 copies with denominations printed in red while 2,000 copies black) will be released along with the postage label. Each folio includes one each in NT$9, NT$13, NT$15 and NT$17 denominations of the label, a set of two stamps and a souvenir sheet of the New Year’s Greeting Postage Stamps (Issue of 2018) and a specimen label.
The postage label will be available on October 2, 2019 in postage label vending machines at the Postal Museum and the following branches: Keelung Aisan Rd., National Taiwan Ocean University, Taipei Beimen, Taipei Railway Station, Taipei Daan, Taipei Xinyi, Shilin, Neihu, Neihu Bihu, Nangang, Banqiao Guoqing, Xindian, Zhonghe, Sanxia, Shulin, Sanchong Zhongshan Rd., Danshuei, Tamkang University, Xinzhuang, Fu Jen Catholic University, Linkou, Taoyuan Chenggong Rd., Zhongli, Zhongli Neili, Longtan, Yangmei, Hsinchu Wuchang St., Hsinchu Science Park, Xinpu, Zhubei, Zhudong, Miaoli Zhongmiao, Yuanli, Taichung Gongyi Rd., Taichung Yingcai, Taichung Minqyuan Rd., Taichung Industrial Areas, Taichung Xiangshang, Taiping, Fongyuan, Tanzi, Providence University, Changhua Zhongyang Rd., Changhua Guangfu Rd., Lugang, Yuanlin, Douliou Xiping Rd., Chiayi Yushan, Tainan Chenggong Rd., Xinxing, Zuoying, Kaohsiung Railway Station Front, Xiaogang, Kaohsiung Xijia, Fongshan, Gangshan, Pingtung Minsheng Rd., Yilan Zhongshan Rd., Hualien Guoan and Taitung Datong Rd.
