Special Features:
- Second in a series of stamp-shaped coins. 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 coin travels back in time to 1908, to reproduce a stamp issued for the 300th anniversary of the founding of Quebec City.
- Faithful reproduction. The engraved reproduction of the 1908 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-coloured stamp
- Forever preserved in 99.99% pure silver, this collectible is the perfect gift for philatelists and numismatists alike.
