Philatelists are going for gold in the Beijing Olympics -- special edition stamps celebrating each gold medal won by China to be issued within 48 hours of the victory.

It will be the fast ever issuance of commemorative stamps in China.

From Aug. 9, the stamps will be issued with stamp folders and commemorative envelopes, according to China National Philatelic Corporation, the publisher of the stamps.

The company said each stamp would be imprinted with the China delegation logo, patterns on both sides of the gold medals, the name of each medallist with a photo them receiving the medals, when and where the medals were won, against the Olympic "auspicious cloud" background.

The stamp folders will include nine stamps for single and double players, five for team players, sold at 30 yuan (4.4 U.S. dollars) for each folder.

The commemorative envelopes will feature photos of athletes winning and receiving the medals, and will be stamped with postmarks of Olympic venues and addressed to mailbox No. 102008-1,dated with the day when the medal is claimed.

A total of 20,000 such commemorative envelopes will be available for 6yuan each.

Three stamp factories in Beijing, Henan Province and Shenyang of Liaoning Province will be printing the commemorative products.
