“The Postal Service is proud to celebrate the Lunar New Year with the issuance of this magnificent Forever Stamp,” said USPS VP of Sales Cliff Rucker, who dedicated the stamp. “Dragons are regarded as magical or divine, welcome symbols of renewed hope for the future. With this new stamp, we hope that the year will bring the best to all of us, no matter what sign we were born under.”

A self-supporting government enterprise, the U.S. Postal Service is a delivery service that reaches every address in the nation, 151 million residences, businesses and Post Office Boxes.
