China Post issued a set of special stamps featuring the traditional Chinese solar terms on Aug. 7, which marks the Start of Autumn. The stamp set consists of six stamps that represent six different solar terms in the autumn: Start of Autumn, End of Heat, White Dew, Autumn Equinox, Cold Dew and Frost's Descent.
The price for a whole set is 7.2 yuan (around $1.1) and each stamp has a nominal value of 1.2 yuan. The issued stamps portray people and autumn scenes in detail, and highlight the sense of accomplishment and satisfaction in life and labor during the harvest season.
