China issues special stamps featuring Palace Museum
China Post issued a set of stamps featuring the Palace Museum on Saturday, with a total face value of 11.40 yuan (US$1.62).
The newly issued set consists of four stamps bearing architectural features in the Palace Museum, including the Inner Golden Water Bridge and the Hall of Central Harmony, as well as a miniature sheet showcasing a sketch-map of the Palace Museum, which is the first time the sketch-map presented on a stamp.
A series of cultural activities will be held to promote traditional Chinese culture in 2020, as the Forbidden City, former imperial compound, marks its 600th anniversary. This year also marks the 95th anniversary of the establishment of the Palace Museum.
