Luxembourg is a small country situated in the northwestern sector of Europe. The official name of the country is Groussherzogtum Letzebue (Luxemburgian); Grand-Duche de Luxembourg (French); Grossherzogtum Luxemburg (German) (Grand Duchy of Luxembourg). The name  "Luxembourg " is derived from the name of an old Roman castle purchased by Siegfried, Count of Ardennes from the Abbey of St. Maimin in Trier on April 2, 963. The name of the castle was Lucilinburhuc meaning "small fortress" which over the years became known as Luxembourg.

The beautifully marked cat found on Java lives in the forest though its track are often found on the beach at Sukamade in Meru Betiri,  reserve. The selection of the object was associated with the Chinese lunar year, which is the year of the tiger. In addition to the souvenir sheet, an exhibition cover is also issued, featuring a scenic view of Luxembourg city.
