New Releases ROK

(News from 우정사업본부 / KoreaPost) On 2 December 2019 KoreaPost released two stamps celebrating the New Year and New Year’s Greetings. After the year of the pig, 2019, the year 2020 will be the Year of the (Metal) Rat according to the Chinese zodiac, which is why these two stamps depict rats.

KoreaPost released these two stamps in a commemorative (souvenir) stamp sheet of 4 (2×2) stamps at the new postal rate of 380 won each, printed by Cartor for POSA:
