The Royal Canadian Mint’s Canada’s Historical Stamps series is a numismatic tribute to early 20th century stamp designs, with colorful reproductions engraved within the “perforated” edges that transform this rectangular coin into a stamp-shaped one.
With serrated edges that mimic a postal stamp’s perforations, this fine Silver coin is a numismatic celebration of Canada’s postal and philatelic history, with a special focus on early 20th century stamp designs.
- Contains 1 oz of .9999 fine Silver.
- Comes in a maroon clamshell with a graphic outer box.
- Low limited mintage of 5,000 coins.
- Obverse: Effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.
- Reverse: Engraved on the stamp-shaped reverse is a detailed reproduction of a Canadian special delivery stamp issued on July 1, 1942, to highlight Canada’s involvement in the Allied cause during the Second World War. The 10-cent denomination stamp was designed by Herman Herbert Schwartz and originally engraved by Silas Robert Allen, as evidenced by the horizontal lines that are indicative of traditional intaglio printing or line engraving. The pictorial collage features the former Arms of Canada within a shield atop a bough of maple leaves, and flanked by four flags that represent Canada’s different military contributions. An application of modern color mimics the deep bright green color of the original issue, which had an inscribed denomination of “10 CENTS”.
This is the third and final coin in a limited series that travels back in time to 1908, to reproduce a stamp issued in 1942, when a proud nation had dedicated its resources to support the Allied effort in WWII. Add this brilliant Silver Historical Stamps coin to your cart today!
