* 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

The Parliament Buildings of Canada are featured on new definitive postage stamps designed by Montreal graphic artist Rolf Harder. The 36¢ definitive illustrates a rear view of the Centre Block of the Parliament Buildings. The Parliamentary Library appears in the foreground. Opened in 1876, the library was the only building spared when fire destroyed the Centre Block in 1916. An iron door separated it from the flames sweeping the remainder of the building. Reconstruction of the Centre block was completed in 1927 with the inauguration of the Peace Tower. New definitive postage stamps will be issued in coil and in vending machine booklet formats. A dark red, one-colour, steel-engraved version of the 36¢ Centre Block stamp will be used for the coil. A dark rose, steel-engraved version of this stamp will appear in the 50¢ vending booklet. The booklet also includes two 1¢ stamps featuring the East Block in green, one-colour, steel engraving, and two 6¢ stamps showing the West Block in brown, one-colour, steel-engraving. Each of the ten booklet covers illustrates a different architectural detail of the Centre Block.
