About Stamp

Our Familiar Queen definitive has undergone two modifications. In addition to a change in denomination, this newly-designed stamp features a blue background to replace the red. The definitive continues to use Yousuf Karsh''s portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, first seen on a definitive issue in 1987. Queen Elizabeth first appeared on a Canadian postage stamp as a young princess in 1935, and has graced several issues since.
