About Stamp

Just as the $1 and $2 definitive postage stamps issued in March 1972 remind us of our urban centres, Canada's new medium value denomination remind us of the tremendous variety in our nation's terrain. The immensity and diversity of Canada are almost incomprehensible; few other nations have the challenge of the seas, the woodlands, the prairies, the mountains and the north. Our country, a land of breathtaking beauty, has inspired Reinhard Derreth, of Vancouver, to create these designs which capture something of the vastness and beauty. The 10c. stamp portrays the forests so typical of central Canada. Although predominately treed with spruce, pine, tamarack, cedar and fir, the deciduous trees which also grow in this region set the forests ablaze with reds, oranges and yellows each autumn. The forests, the abundant wildlife, and the lakes that dot the countryside attract thousands of visitors searching for rest and relaxation.


Canada. Post Office Department. [Postage Stamp Press Release], 1972.
