Mint Stamps Mark the Year of the Tiger

The Year of the Tiger started on Valentine’s Day in 2010.  The Tiger is a bold, determined, and impulsive sign, but one which can also bring hasty decisions and stubborn reactions.  People born under the sign of the Tiger are thought to be lucky and courageous.

 

Each Chinese sign is associated with one of five elements (wood, fire, earth, water, metal).  Metal was the dominant element in 2010, which reinforces the determination of the Tiger.  It can be an invigorating combination – or a reckless one.

 

The Chinese New Year is considered to be a Lunar New Year, but it is actually based on a “lunisolar” calendar, which uses aspects of both the lunar and solar calendars.  One result of this is that every several years there is a “leap month,” which is why the 2010 New Year started on February 14th, while the 2009 Year of the Ox started on January 26th.

    On July 1, 1847, the first US postage stamps went on sale.  The 5¢ issue of 1847 (US #1) features a portrait of Benjamin Franklin, the man responsible for organizing America's postal service back in the 1700s.  Postal clerks used scissors to cut the stamps from sheets, as perforations weren't in use yet.  Today, US #1 is a valued piece of American postal history and a lucky find in any condition.
