To mark the 100th anniversary of the Republic of China, Chunghwa Post is issuing a 2nd print of a single “National Flower Postage Stamp” with a denomination of NT$100 on October 10, 2011, ROC’s national day. The design of the stamp follows:

Printed in intaglio combined with offset, this high face value stamp incorporates several different printing techniques. The two blooming plum blossoms on the lower right corner and the frames of the stamp are printed in offset, while the plum blossoms and the branches in the center as well as the stamp’s denomination are printed in intaglio. The plum blossoms, branches and the line frame are printed in gold; and the denomination is, for the first time in Chunghwa Post’s history, printed with variable ink which is for anti-counterfeiting and normally used on banknotes. The sheet contains ten stamps arranged in a double-ten pattern, while the marginal inscriptions are of different plum blossom ink-wash paintings. This classic, exquisite sheet is well worth collecting.(Source-Chunghwa Post).
