  • 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

In the last issue of Details, Canada Post introduced a special commemorative Queen Elizabeth domestic rate (51¢) issue to celebrate Her Majesty's 80th year.

In recognition of Queen Elizabeth's actual birthdate on April 21, Canada Post will issue a souvenir sheet of two international rate ($1.49) stamps featuring the same beautiful image that graces the domestic rate issue. The image, which combines photography from the Department of Canadian Heritage and the design work of q30 design inc., depicts the Queen in a colourful and luminous informal portrait taken at the RCMP Rockcliffe Stables in Ottawa in 2002.

Complete with the words "Happy Birthday / April 21, 1926" in both official languages, this is a wonderful keepsake that will reign supreme for years to come.
