Hong Kong 2015 Year of the Ram Silk Stamp Sheetlet

Issue date 24 January 2015

The Chinese zodiac, represented by 12 animals, is an integral part of Chinese traditional culture. 

The Ram  are considerate creatures - they think before acting, and try not to hurt somebody else's feelings. A Ram person always seeks approval of people they respect. They need to feel loved and protected.

They are also wanderers by nature and are happy to set off on journeys to meet new people and to see the world. They possess a power to turn their fortune around - just when everything seems bleak, hopeless, and despairing something or someone turns up to help.

The silk sheet shows a traditional handcrafted pastel celadonware of Ram. The HKD 50 Silk Stamp Sheetlet is printed on Silk paper with security fibers using the Lithography printing method.
