Monkeys are loved by people for their agility and flexibility. The monkey ranks ninth in the Chinese zodiac and means longevity. They are usually chosen as auspicious elements in New Year paintings and paper cuts. The set includes two stamp styles. A lively monkey is grasping a stick with a peach in the other hand, smiling. For the other layout, a female monkey is hugging her two orange cubs, depicting the joy of a reunited family.

In accordance, China National Philatelic Corp. will issue a FDC and commemorative postmark.
