Canada Post on Monday honoured the Diamond Jubilee at the Museum of Civilization in Ottawa by unveiling a new postage stamp featuring a photograph of Queen Elizabeth II.
The stamp — now available at post offices nationwide — shows Her Majesty in her royal robes and tiara, waving from the window of a carriage.
Canada Post also made available the first of six Diamond Jubilee mini-panes of four stamps issued as part of a limited edition keepsake folder.
A final stamp issue will feature an engraved stamp with two portraits of the Queen, a design inspired by the famous Canadian stamp issued, in 1897, for Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee.
