  • 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.

About Stamp

More than 3,200 competitors from 66 eligible nations will meet in Victoria on August 18 to participate in the XV Commonwealth Games. In her Commonwealth Day Message this year, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II said it was appropriate that sport is the theme for Commonwealth Day, as the most popular Commonwealth event will be Victoria's Games and the linked cultural festival. The Queen will open the Games in the newly-expanded 32,000 seat Centennial Stadium, close to the Athletes'Village on the University of Victoria campus. Her youngest son, Prince Edward, will attend the Closing Ceremony on August 28, 1994. The four stamps being issued on August 5 will complement the se tenant pair of stamps issued on May 20. The stamps show athletes participating in various events, the Queen's Baton and with flowers forming a framing feature. The men's wheelchair marathon and women's high jump form a 43¢ se tenant pair, while women's diving is depicted on the 50¢ value and men's cycling is the subject of the 88¢ stamp. Women's high jump has been part of the Games since 1934. Canada's Debbie Brill took two golds in this event - in 1970 and again in 1982.
