New Issue: China releases first 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics stamps

China Post launched its first set of commemorative stamps for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics at the beginning of this month.

The stamps, which have a face value of 1.2 yuan (about 23 cents) and measure 30 mm by 40 mm, depict the logos of the Winter Olympic Games and Paralympic Games on a white background, which symbolize the purity of ice and snow. The stamps also include anti-counterfeiting watermarks and the words “Beijing 2022.”

“As an Olympic tradition, the issuance of commemorative stamps will help promote the image of Beijing 2022, the Olympic spirit and the Chinese culture,” said Han Zirong, secretary-general of the Beijing 2022 organizing committee, at the stamps’ unveiling earlier this month.

The other stamp depicts the 2022 Paralympic Games logo.

“Hopefully, it will ignite passion among philatelists, enable the general public to get involved in winter sports and pay close attention to Beijing’s preparation for the Games.”

OLYMPIC STAMP PROGRAM

The inaugural set marks the beginning of a program that allows China Post to issue a series of stamps commemorating the 2022 Winter Olympics, including its various mascots, venues and events, leading up to the opening ceremony on Feb. 4, 2022.
