About Stamp

The Parliament Buildings of Canada, a profile of Queen Elizabeth II, and four Heritage Artifacts are featured on these definitive stamps reflecting changes in postage rates. Four new stamps depict objects used in everyday life in Canada during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The four artifact stamps were designed by Jean-Pierre Beaudin and Jean Morin. The stamp designs employ the same duotone technique for the artifacts as was used on the other stamps of this series issued in 1982 and 1983. The rich but subtle background colours represent the humble circumstances of the average Canadian pioneer home.
