Philpost launches “2015 Year of the Goat” stamps


Just a few days before 2014 bids goodbye, the Philippine Postal Corporation (Philpost) launched its 2015 special stamp for the Year of the Goat. The special stamp has two designs. One features a colorful image of a goat’s head, which will be sold at P10 per piece, and another showing the whole body, which will be sold at P30. The stamps, which are printed using scented ink, bear the greeting “Manigong Bagong Taon,” and “Happy New Year.” The bottom of the stamps bore some Chinese characters and the words “2015 Year of the Goat.” In the Chinese zodiac, 2015 is the year of the green wooden goat. The goat or sheep is the eighth animal to heed Buddha’s call. It is believed that those born in a goat year are creative, intelligent, dependable and calm. The Philpost said it is circulating only 55,000 copies for each image. The special stamps measures 40mm x 30 mm, and will be sold until supply runs out. Jose Antonio Jayme is the layout artist and was printed in imported unwatermarked paper by security printer Amstar Co. Inc.
