Description of obverse and reverse Obverse: Dom Pedro V Theatre was built in 1860 by local Portuguese to commemorate their reigning King, Peter V. Dom Pedro V Threatre, located on St Augustine`s Square in Macao is one of the first western-style theatres in China. The theatre is an important landmark in the region and remains a venue for important public events and celebrations today. Reverse: this issue features a gentle Rabbit alongside plum blossoms with alluring colours. The plum blossoms being one of the most beloved flowers in China have been depicted in Chinese art and poetry for centuries. Plum blossoms bloom most vibrantly amidst the winter snow after most other plants have shed their leaves, and before other flowers appear. They are thus seen as an example of resilience and perseverance in the face of adversity.
