Souvenir sheets: Chinese Zodiac

Two very ornate souvenir sheets from Hong Kong, each featuring a set of stamps representing the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac.

There is a silver sheet and a gold sheet, with complimentary designs. The animal designs are different on the two sheets, making 24 designs. These sheets are the full set of stamps issued over the last 12 years. Each year two stamps were issued: one stamp representing the outgoing year and one stamp representing the incoming year.
