Fireworks Displays

Date of Issue : 1 January 2011

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Republic of China, a souvenir sheet was issued on 1 January 2011.

This souvenir sheet includes four stamps, each depicting a firework sight fused into a river nightscape. From left to right: the Double Tenth Day fireworks display in Taipei (NT$5), Taipei 101’s New Year fireworks display (NT$5), the Lantern Festival fireworks display on Kaohsiung’s Love River (NT$25), and the Dragon Boat Festival fireworks display in Taoyuan County’s Longtan (NT$25). The background of the souvenir sheet features a fireworks display by the Taipei Ferris Wheel, which conveys a sense of universal celebration.

The souvenir sheet is printed in intaglio combined with offset. For the first time ever, the sheet is hot stamped with optical variable film to highlight the fireworks displays and the play of light and shadow on the Ferris wheel.

The souvenir sheet is really very nice. I like it very much. The datestamp of is also very interesting. Thank You very much to my friend !
