Special Features:
- Canada’s first stamp-shaped coin. 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.
-
The classic look of a bygone era. This FIRST coin in a limited series travels back in time to 1927 to reproduce a stamp issued for Canada’s Diamond Jubilee.
-
Faithful reproduction. The engraved reproduction of the 1927 stamp is just as detailed as the original — complete with horizontal lines that were the product of intaglio printing, or line engraving, one of the oldest methods of stamp production.
-
Vintage colours. The addition of colour over engraving completes this reproduction of the original brown carmine- coloured stamp.
-
Forever preserved in 99.99% pure silver, this collectible is the perfect gift for philatelists and numismatists alike.

Packaging:
Maroon clamshell with black beauty box.
