On January 10, 1997 Singapore issued a set of 2 stamps (S.G. #s 861-2) for the Chinese New Year (Year of the Ox). During 1997, three "Year of the Ox" miniature sheets were issued for 3 international stamp shows: February 12, Hong Kong '97 (S.G. #MS863), May 29, Pacific '97 San Francisco (S.G. #MS895), and November 19, Shanghai '97 (S.G. #MS913). The Shanghai '97 souvenir sheet is shown here.
The regular sheet stamps were produced as single-value panes of 50. The 2 stamps were also sold in smaller, se-tenant sheets of 18, arranged so that se-tenant pairs could be collected vertically or horizontally.
The low value sheet stamps are inscribed "for local addresses only", while the low values on the miniature sheets are inscribed "22c".
