Queen Elizabeth II

2009-queen-elizabeth-ii-stamp.jpgThis year, on January 12th, 2009 Canada Post began issuing a new stamp portraying Queen Elizabeth II. Royal faces have often been a common stamp subject, and this PERMANENT-rate stamp continues in this long tradition. When stamps were first issued by Great Britain, a royal face had to grace its front. In fact, from 1840-1900, the only illustration allowed on a British stamp was the profile of Queen Victoria!
