Hong Kong's mushrooms will feature on a set of four stamps to be issued by Hongkong Post on Nov. 23, said Postmaster General Allan Chiang in Hong Kong Monday. The new Mint Stamps include the Straw Mushroom at HK$1.40 (US$0.18), the Red-orange Mushroom at HK$2.40 (US$0.31), the Violet Marasmius at HK$3 (0. US$38) and the Lingzhi at HK$5 (US$0.64). A convenient Souvenir Sheet comprises a complete set of the four stamps at HK$11.80 (US$1.5). There is also a Stamp Sheetlet at HK$5 (US$0.64) featuring the Hexagon Fungus together with selected elements from the other four stamp images. These colorful stamps offer a stylized representation of some of the better-known mushrooms found in Hong Kong. "With the release of these new stamps, we ensure that this tradition of quality is maintained and also bring alive for the people of Hong Kong the beauty of the place in which we live," said Allan. The stamps are designed by local artist Ken Li and printed by Joh Enschede BV in the Netherlands.
