New China Monkey stamps proving popular

A new set of Monkey stamps celebrating the end of the one child policy are taking China by storm.

China Monkey stamps
The Monkey stamps reference the end of the one child policy

The issue was released earlier this week, ahead of Chinese New Year on February 8 (2016 is the year of the monkey in Chinese culture).

The stamp depicts a monkey with two babies, in reference to the end of China's decades-long policy.

Collectors and non-collectors alike are reportedly queuing up outside post offices to get their hands on the stamps, mirroring the enthusiasm for the famous 1980 Golden Monkey stamps - which regularly achieve major sums at auction.
