NEW! Snow Mammals: Souvenir sheet Official First Day Cover


Product # 404161144


Showcase the hidden beauty and diversity of Canada’s snow mammals with this souvenir sheet Official First Day Cover. Each stamp also reproduces its animal’s tracks in snow in fluorescent ink, which are only visible under ultraviolet (black) light. The cancel location is Snow Lake, Manitoba.

The stamps feature stunning photographs of five Canadian mammals – the ermine, snowshoe hare, Arctic fox, Peary caribou and northern collared lemming.

Their coats moult from lighter-weight shades of brown or grey in warmer months to a heavier-weight white in winter, giving them effective camouflage and increasing their odds of survival.

These animals are difficult to see in any season, which is why we’ve added the tracks of each animal on these stamps in ink visible only under ultraviolet (black) light!
