South Korea 2016 Year of the Rooster 2017 Embossed 3D Holographic foil Stamp Odd Shaped Miniature Sheet




Issue date 01 December 2016

The Chinese year 2017 lasts from 28 January 2017 to 15 February 2018 and stands under the rule of the rooster.

In Korea, the rooster appeared as an animal announcing the birth of the ruler of a new country in the myth of Kim Alji, the progenitor of the Gyeongju Kim clan and the Kim dynasty of Silla.

To predict a good harvest, farmers used to count the crows of the first rooster at dawn on New Year’s Day or January 15th by the lunar calendar.


It was believed that a good harvest was on the way if the rooster crowed more than ten times.
