Shiquan, which literally means “ten complete” in Chinese, is used to describe something that is perfect. It is an expression often used to wish someone good luck. After issuing a set of personal greeting stamps featuring ten lucky phrases on October 10, 2004, Chunghwa Post is following up with another set of ten stamps, each containing a common Chinese auspicious phrase associated with a number from one to ten. Each of the designs will be printed in two denominations: NT$3.5 and NT$5. The stamps will be released on May 27, 2011. 
This set of stamps features delicately painted pictures with photographs of handicrafts to express auspiciousness. The calligraphies in the stamps are taken from famous calligraphers. The designs follow:

1. A Singularly Harmonious Vibe: This expression describes the harmonious atmosphere radiated from amiable persons.

2. Double Happiness: This expression suggests one joyful event after another.

3. Blessings from the Three Stars: This expression conveys the good wishes of having lots of offspring, climbing up the career ladder and becoming wealthy, as well as having limitless good luck.
