Usps Chinese Lunar Collection 12 Pc Set Gold Plated Silver Ingots. 999
In 1993, in recognition of the contribution made by Chinese-Americans, the United States Postal Service issued a special commemorative stamp, the Year of the Rooster. It was so popular that an unprecedented decision was made to issue a Lunar New Year Stamp every year, fulfilling the 12-year cycle of the Chinese lunar zodiac. The complete series of 12 stamps has now been expertly engraved by craftsmen as solid silver ingots, layered with 24-karat gold, to create The Lunar New Year Collection. Each ingot in this unique collection faithfully reproduces the historic Chinese paper-cut animal designs of the original stamp, honoring an ancient tradition maintained to this day in the Chinese New Year Festival. Included in this set you will also receive a special Jeweler's Cloth and Gloves, a lacquered wood Collector's Chest, a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, and a double-sided Lunar New Year Souvenir Sheet personally signed by the designer Clarence Lee. This set is in pristine collection! Super low mintage of only 8,800! INCLUDED IN THIS LISTING YOU WILL ALSO RECEIVE A FREE 1 OZ SILVER ROUND AND A 1 OZ COPPER ROUND OF OUR CHOOSING!
