* 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.
This stamp has a hidden date in the bottom-right corner.
To provide 5-cent stamps for the increased first class letter rate effective 1st April, 1954, the Department rushed supplies of the new design stamps for use on that day. The remaining denominations were issued on 19th June, 1954. The colours of the stamps are the same as those of the former issue portraying Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Dorothy Wilding Portraits, Limited, supplied the photograph for reproduction.
