* 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

Issued by the Post Office Department to mark the completion of one hundred years of responsible government in Canada. The central motif of the stamp consists of an illustration of the Centre Block of the Canadian Parliament Buildings in Ottawa. At the top left appears a profile of the young Queen Victoria, during whose reign responsible government for the colony was introduced. Since the centenary of responsible government occurred during the reign of King George VI, his portrait appears in the upper right portion of the same stamp. The Parliament Building was used on this stamp since it is the meeting place of the elected representatives of the people of Canada.
