The People’s Republic of China has issued an official stamp set in recognition of Dr. Jau-Fei Chen’s pioneering the science of Nutritional Immunology and her immense contributions to better the health of mankind. China State Post Bureau granted special permission for Dr Jau-Fei Chen to be the first person in Shanghai featured on special-use portrait stamps. In China, strict regulations apply to special-use stamp production, especially for portrait stamps. People featured on portrait stamps include those who had significant impact on China, such as prominent historical and social figures Mao Zedong and Lu Xun, the father of modern Chinese literature. Being selected for special-use portrait stamps in China is a significant honor.
China State Post Bureau officially launched special-use stamps service in 2002 and received widespread attention from stamp collectors worldwide. As special-use stamps have high commemorative and collectible value, E. Excel Shanghai applied for permission in 2006 to produce a “Bridging Nutrition and Immunology — Dr Jau-Fei Chen” commemorative stamp set.
This stamp set uses the everknot design to symbolize that E. Excellers around the world are united in heart. Many of the beautifully designed stamps in this set feature photos of Dr Jau-Fei Chen doing research. The stamp set is printed and distributed by Beijing Stamp Printing House.
Like other stamps issued by China State Post Bureau, the stamps in this set can be used as postage certificates. More importantly, this stamp set has high collectible value. This is undoubtedly a most precious honor for Dr. Jau-Fei Chen and all E. Excellers!
