* Notes about these prices:
  • They are currently in beta mode, meaning that they should not be relied upon yet as a source of truth and could change frequently. Please notify CPS if you come across values that do not make sense.
  • They are not based on catalogue values but on current dealer and auction listings. The reason for this is that catalogues tend to over-value stamps.
  • They are average prices and might not be fully accurate. The actual value of your stamp may be slightly above or below the listed value, depending on the overall condition of your stamp.

About Stamp

In 1939 Their Majesties King George VI and Queen Elizabeth visited the Dominion of Canada. Thus Canada had the signal honour of being the first of the Commonwealth nations to welcome the new King and Queen in person. To honour this historic occasion and add to the warm sincerity of Canada's welcome, the Post Office Department issues three special commemorative postage stamps to coincide with the tour of Their Majesties throughout the Dominion. The stamps were printed in two colours each.
