About Stamp

The maple leaf has symbolized Canada from its earliest days when settlers first admired the brightly coloured maple leaves of autumn, and in 1965 the maple leaf actually became the country's national emblem through its use on our flag. Raymond Bellemare's now familiar maple leaf design illustrates this issue of definitive postage stamps reflecting the new postal rates. This 50-cent vending machine booklet containing one 30-cent stamp, one 10-cent stamp and two 5-cent stamps is featuring a line drawing of one of the ten provincial legislative buildings on each cover.
