About Chinese Signs of the Zodiac - Rat

This year the Philately is adding its ninth motif to its elaborately designed series on Chinese Signs of the Zodiac. The upcoming Chinese Year runs from 25 January 2020 to 11 February 2021 and is reigned by the rat. The rat is the first sign in the Chinese zodiac. According to the Chinese horoscope, people born in the Year of the Rat have a quick mind, are curious and search high and low for lucrative opportunities. The mysterious and clever animal seems to be able to solve all of life’s problems. Its character is reinforced by the element of the year – metal.

This stands for firmness and determination, according to astrologers. For the “Year of the Rat” (face value: CHF 2.00), the Philately is once again publishing a self-adhesive special stamp in the form of a filigree silhouette cut using the latest laser technology. The sheet of four stamps in red, a symbol of happiness in China, is also punched out in the shape of a rodent. All imprints were applied in elegant gold foil embossing.
