Special Features:
- THIRD and FINAL coin in the series. 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 looks back at Canada during the war years with a reproduction of the 10-cent special delivery stamp from the 1942-43 War issue.
- 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. A modern application of green colour completes the vintage (and historically accurate) look of this classic design.
- Forever preserved in 99.99% pure silver, this collectible is the perfect gift for philatelists and numismatists alike.
