Royal Gibraltar Post at Spring Stampex 2018

From RGPO;

New “Year of the Dog” design & Masonic stamps with Valentine’s Day overprint for GI01 during Stampex.

The Royal Gibraltar Post Office will once again commemorate the Chinese New Year by launching a new design at Stampex with the next animal in the series; “Year of the Dog”. Ranking as the eleventh animal in Chinese zodiac, Dog is the symbol of loyalty and honesty. People born in the Year of the Dog possess the best traits of human nature. They are honest, friendly, faithful, loyal, smart, straightforward, venerable and have a strong sense of responsibility.

In order to celebrate Valentine’s Day, GI01 will also vend the current Masonic stamps which will include a “Happy Valentine’s –Spring Stampex 2018” overprint with heart graphics between the 14th – 17th February only.
