Lunar New Year Dragon 2012
Every year Australia and other countries release stamps related to the Lunar New Year celebration. A lot of my swap friends collect lunar new year stamps and so I thought I'd also send this first day cover to myself.
Issued on 10 January 2012, pictured above are the stamps from the sheetlet showing all 12 animals in the Chinese zodiac. Below are stamps for standard local letter rates - 60c (50g) and $1.80 (125 - 250g).

Because these are quite popular with collectors, there is an abundance of related products including gold-foiled souvenir sheets, numismatic covers, medallion covers, etc.
