2006 39¢ Chinese New Year
Issue Date: January 29, 2006
City: Washington, DC
Quantity: 5,000,000
Printed By: Banknote Corporation of America for Sennett Security Products
Printing Method: Lithographed
Perforations: Serpentine die cut 10 ¾
Color: Multicolored
 
In 2005, the U.S.P.S. issued a souvenir sheet of the 12 Lunar New Year Series designs. At the 2005 first-class rate of 37¢, however, the cost of the sheet would have been $4.44 for 12 stamps. The number four is an unlucky number in Asia.
 
The Postal Service decided to make the sheet double-sided. The total price of the sheet of 24 then became $8.88; eight is a lucky number in Asia. In 2006, the first-class rate became 39¢, the total for a sheet of 12 was $4.68, and production of a single-sided sheet was possible - as luck would have it.
