Queen Elizabeth II Definitive

Posted on Nov. 16, 2006 by CPO in Latest Stamps
Perhaps the most familiar of the Crown jewels is that dazzling royal smile. Her Majesty the Queen appears on a new domestic rate definitive in a delightful close-focus portrait that shows the great pleasure with which she still greets the public. The photo was taken during Her visit to Saskatchewan in 2005, while on Her 23rd trip to Canada. The warmth in Her face and the bright floral colours reflect the celebratory tone of that visit. "We try to find images of the Queen that are especially relevant to Canada," says Liz Wong, Manager of Stamp Design and Production. "This one is lovely, because she's really smiling."

While valued at the domestic rate, the stamp is non-denominated and bears a new icon, the letter "P" within a maple leaf. This icon indicates that the stamp is permanent™ and valid indefinitely. The stamp is available in self-adhesive booklets of 10.
