Prince George commemorative stamp printed on trusecurity stamp paper.
17 Oct 2013
Less than a week before His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge's christening, Canada Post has announced a new limited-edition commemorative stamp featuring the infant Prince to be issued on 22nd October. Printed on trusecurity® stamp paper, the stamp features an informal photo of His Royal Highness, Prince George with his mother and father, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Prince George will be the youngest Royal to make an appearance on a Canadian stamp.
In 2011, Canada Post issued two stamps featuring His and Her Royal Highnesses, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge; one to commemorate the young couple's engagement and the second to mark their wedding. Those stamps proved to be the most popular issues of that year.
About the stamp
The stamp measures 32mm x 32mm with simulated perforations. Printed by Lowe-Martin on Tullis Russell trusecurity® paper using seven-colour lithography. The stamp is pressure sensitive and is available in booklets of 10 stamps and souvenir sheets of two stamps. To purchase philatelic products, please visit canadapost.ca/shop.
