- Obverse: Effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.
- Reverse: Engraved on the stamp-shaped reverse is a detailed reproduction of a Canadian postal stamp issued on June 29, 1927, to commemorate Canada’s Diamond Jubilee. Titled Center Block of the Parliament Buildings, the original design by Herman Herbert Schwartz and engraved by Harold Osborn, features a front view of the Peace Tower and Center Block building on Parliament Hill, in Ottawa. The three-cent stamp was printed using the traditional intaglio printing or line engraving method, as evidenced by the horizontal lines re-created on the reverse. An application of modern color mimics the brown carmine hue of the original issue, while the double dates “1867” and “1927” and the word “CONFEDERATION” reflect the 60th anniversary of Confederation. Like the 1927 stamp, the reverse includes ornamental flourishes and the word “CANADA” on a scroll banner, along with the bilingual “POSTES / POST” and the face value, represented by the number “3” and the word “CENTS”.
This is the first coin in a limited series traveling back in time to 1927 to reproduce a stamp issued for Canada’s Diamond Jubilee. Add this brilliant Silver Historical Stamps coin to your cart today!
