PostNews shows New Year 2020 greeting cards

General Philatelic News

PostNews, one of the websites maintained in the KoreaPost family of postal websites, released images of the series of New Year greetings cards for 2020. The (Chinese/Korean) year 2020, starting on January 25 2020, is the Year of the (Metal) Rat. Several of the cards therefore show a rat/mouse, but other images are available.

(For a much more thorough explanation of the cards please see James Grayson’s article on the symbolism behind the cards.)

A series of 7 cards has been released. Because there were no catalogue numbers mentioned in the original text the cards are shown here in no particular order:
