  • 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

On 1st July, 1947, the eightieth anniversary of Canadian Confederation, this stamp was issued to commemorate the passage of the Canadian Citizenship Act. This act, a development of great importance in Canadian constitutional history, gives a clear and simple definition of Canadian citizenship. The act also provides an underlying community of status for all peoples of Canada, binding them together as Canadians.

Canadian Citizenship

In the design, Canadian citizenship is personified by the figure of a youth standing with upraised hand and arm on the northern portion of the Western Hemisphere. The geographical outline of Canada is broadly indicated at his feet.
