The transitional souvenir Sheet issued by Canada Post to celebrate the end of the Year of the Snake and the start of the Year of the Horse on January 31, 2014  and features 2 international stamps : the 2013 Year of the Snake stamp and the 2014 Year of the Horse stamp. 

The two stamps depicts a golden horse, rearing up on its hind legs, (current 2014 stamp issue) and a brilliant gold & jade snake (previous 2013 stamp issue) with 3D embossing effect.

The souvenir sheet is designed with 2 prominent colors - Red, the dominant color on the background sheet, symbolizes good fortune and joy. Gold, the main color on both of the stamps, symbolizes wealth, prosperity and happiness.

Those born under this sign can struggle between a need for independence and a desire for close friendships. Their energy and fondness for travel can lead not only to restless wandering, but also to tireless work and ambition. Innate intelligence and quick wit makes it easy to pursue new projects.
